According to the Cleveland Metro, the local coroner has ruled in the death of Harvey Pekar that he died from taking an accidental combination overdose of two anti-depressant medicines, fluoxetine and bupropion (better known as Prozac and Wellbutrin), and that it was not a suicide.
And yes, the name of the coroner in question is Frank Miller.
Harvey’s work in American Splendor often made me question the ludicrousness of life in the oddest, often most tragic, circumstances. It seems fitting that his death should continue that tradition.
We miss you, Harvey.
