MTV: Where do things stand with “The Pekar Project” now? How far ahead did Harvey work on the scripts?
NEWELT: There are still a bunch of comics yet to come out on “The Pekar Project” that we have in the can and done. […]
MTV: I know Harvey had been working on a few other books, too. Were you involved with any of those? Do you know what their status is?
NEWELT: The first branch-off of “The Pekar Project” is coming out this year. He was working on a graphic novel called “Cleveland,” which comes out during the summer of 2011 from this company called Zip Comics. The script was ready for that. It’s one-third history of Cleveland, one-third Harvey’s experiences there, and one-third biographical sketches of Cleveland characters. It’s drawn by Joseph Remnant, one of the definitive Pekar artists.
