This is terrible! I've read his stuff since I came across the first anthology of American Splendor in the mid-80's. My condolences to his wife and foster daughter.

I had a chance to see him talk at Ohio State two and a half years ago but didn't go like a schmuck. At least his work will live on.

Catch the No Reservations episode about Cleveland sometime. He was featured with what looked like some of his art. Pretty good.

Harvey was a good, brutally honest Clevelander. RIP.
