Harvey Pekar and Alison Bechdel join comic forces
Someone had the insane — insane and brilliant! — idea of getting comic book giants Harvey Pekar (American Splendor) and Alison Bechdel (Dykes to Watch Out For, Fun Home) to tour together under the tongue-in-cheek banner “Titans of the Graphic Novel.” They’ve been hitting reading festivals and book stores now for several months.
To jump start the tour, the two collaborated on a strip called “Twilight of the Titans” that looked something like this:
To see more of the strip, go to The Daily Crosshatch.
