“That Pekar didn’t even draw, but put out these regular stories, I thought was amazing”: Vanessa Davis on Harvey Pekar, in the form of a comic (Link via Drawn and Quarterly). Meanwhile, Tom “Comics Reporter” Spurgeon’s “Collective Memory” feature on Pekar offer’s a gigantic collection of remebrances and reactions from all over the Internet, and Spurgeon has written what is probably the definitive obituary of Pekar.

First of all, Daredevil building an Evil Dojo in the heart of Manhattan—OK, I think I already see a problem in your story. Second, and here’s the clincher, we’re supposed to think that Daredevil has finally CROSSED THE LINE by shanking Bullseye. Come on, I’m sorry—if you had Daredevil killing, I don’t know, the Matador or Stilt-Man or something, that would be CROSSING THE LINE. But Bullseye? The same Bullseye who’s got a body count somewhere in four or five digits?
