The first among the many scheduled posthumous releases of Harvey Pekar's work will be out this year. "Harvey Pekar's Cleveland," a 112-page graphic novel on Cleveland history and Pekar's life, will be published by ZIP Comics and Top Shelf.
Joseph Remnant, who worked on the Pekar Project, illustrated the book.
According to Cleveland editor Jeff Newlet, the entirety of Pekar's script and 20 pages of Remnant's artwork were completed before the author's tragic death last year. "So our man did get to see the book's beginning and was super-pleased with how the art was shaping up," said Newlett in a press release.
