Pic of the Day: Harvey Pekar Statue Planned

Posted By on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 at 2:00 PM

Harvey Pekar is buried at Lake View Cemetery next to Eliot Ness. His widow, Joyce Brabner, hopes to build a statue there.

At Comic-Con on Thursday, Brabner announced plans to raise funds through Kickstarter and described an early vision of the monument. Via the PD, she said, "The statue will be built on the gravesite and will be Harvey stepping out of a page of a graphic novel. The back will be made of slate so people can draw their own art."
