the devil made him do it

Y'know, the masturbation marathons, etc... Brian Heater sums up a list of Joe's sins for the Daily Crosshatch, and also says that, "Spent includes some of the most telling glimpses into life's banalities since the glory days of American Splendor, and like some of Pekar's best work, the poor bastard happily invites us to laugh at him, rather than with him, knowing full well that, in life, we never get the last laugh, but if someone can get a few hearty chuckles or other comfort out of it, then maybe it was worth something, after all." You can also read his interview with Joe Matt here.

Thanks to Ray Pride for this snapshot of Joe Matt with Ivan Brunetti (and the aforementioned devil) at the Quimby's Spent launch on Saturday. The book is now available online from D+Q! Next up: Philly tomorrow & NYC this weekend.
