Accidentally Seeing Harvey Pekar & Alison Bechdel
So the other night, Heather saw in the Creative Loafing that Harvey Pekar would be at a comic book store signing. And so we showed up to not only find him but also Alison Bechdel of Fun Home fame. My friend Dusty Harbin, who manages the place, kindly gave us free tickets to the Novello Festival reading the two were giving that night. So we went. Excellent fun. Pekar talked about knowing Crumb and getting into comics and his new work of publishing biography comics. Bechdel had an amazing presentation discussing her creative process. Such a happy accident.
