Pekar Project Logo
SMITH magazine has launched its newest online comics strip, and its The Pekar Project by guess who!

Pekar Project seeds were planted when Pekar discovered artist Tara Seibel, a fellow Clevelander. They began collaborating on stories for her blog, Rock City Comix. For The Pekar Project, Pekar has formed a band including editor Jeff Newelt and four artists: Seibel, Joseph Remnant, Rick Parker, and Sean Pryor. Just as Duke Ellington composed pieces with a particular featured soloist in mind, Pekar is tailoring each true-life tale to these artists’ individual strengths. Also, as the project progresses, guest artists will be called in to draw stories on a one-shot basis.

We’re fans of all involved, so this should be worth watching.
