Harvey Pekar has passed away. He will be missed.

She sho like ta eat!Bob and Harv's comics are a collection of strips written by the one and only Harvey Pekar and illustrated by the one and only Robert Crumb.

You'll just have to give 'em a read.

Here is a couple favorites of mine, titled Hospital Fun. As well, I've posted an edit I made in tribute of Harvey's most famous strip.
