Harvey Pekar Gets Online

Harvey Pekar of American Splendor fame has teamed up with Tara Seibel, Joseph Remnant, Rick Parker, and Sean Pryor to create his first webcomic over at SMITH.

The Pekar Project will have new stories every other week, along with “interviews, creator spotlights, and behind-the-scenes goodies, as well as essays and art from Pekar collaborators and inhabitants of the extended Pekarverse.” My favorite story so far is “The Art of Making Sushi.”
