As America’s largest publisher of the type of material Harvey Pekar creates, we probably publish more artists who have been influenced by Harvey and "American Splendor" than any other publisher, and as such we though it might be nice to ask a few of our cartoonists to pay their respects. Six artists each donated his or her work out of admiration for Cleveland’s favorite curmudgeon. One, Pat Moriarity, has actively collaborated with Harvey in the past. Another, Bill Griffith, has known Harvey since the 1960s. The others, like myself, are simply fans who were happy to have the opportunity to give back to Harvey in some small way.
