Bring Me the Head of Harvey Pekar. Repeat.

harvey-pekar-heads.jpg

To celebrate the 70th birthday of writer Harvey Pekar, best known for the autobiograpnical comic book American Splendor, last week, the Pekar Project at Smith magazine assembled a gallery of Pekar portraits by close to 100 artists, some who’ve collaborated with him (like Dean Haspiel) but many more who are simply fans. And apparently there’s room for more—artists are invited to contact Smith comics editor Jeff Newelt if they want in on the action.

(While you’re looking at the birthday gallery, check out some of the all-new Pekar stories with artwork by Sean Pryor, Tara Seibel, Joseph Remnant, and Rick Parker.)
