SMITH Magazine Presents The Pekar Project

The Pekar Project

SMITH Magazine recently launched The Pekar Project, a new weekly series of web comics featuring legendary underground comics writer Harvey Pekar, creator of the autobiographical series American Splendor. The first installment features Harvey having a phone conversation about art with Robert Crumb.

Harvey Pekar’s been mining the mundane for magic for more than 30 years in his autobiographical American Splendor comics. Now he has teamed with SMITH and four remarkable artists — Tara Seibel, Joseph Remnant, Rick Parker, and Sean Pryor — to create his first ongoing webcomic series. New stories appear every other week, with interviews, creator spotlights, and behind-the-scenes goodies.
