CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - Two Ohio libraries will honor the late comic book writer Harvey Pekar of the "American Splendor" series with a sculpture at one facility and a likeness of him on the other library's new cards.
A statue of Pekar mounted on a wooden desk will be unveiled Sunday at the main branch of the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library system in suburban Cleveland where Pekar did research.
He also spent time at the Cleveland Public Library. That library on Monday will offer cards imprinted with a drawing of Pekar.
Pekar's comic books and graphic novels portrayed the lives of ordinary people and chronicled his life as a file clerk. He appeared on TV with David Letterman, and "American Splendor" was made into a film starring Paul Giammati.
