This is how Dame Helen Mirren made Comic-Con fall in love with her. I’ve got her buying Eddie Campbell books now.

Morning from LA.

  1. will she just keep getting sexier until she lifts off to the sun? Yes.

  2. She is a classy dame. Such a neat person.

  3. Speechless. Commenting anyway. Because if speechlessness is not shown in a Comment, does anyone notice?

  4. It’s interesting the Americans don’t put much interest in Harvey Pekar. It’s as if he doesn’t exist or is considered a tool or a diversion or something? It’s bewildering how the real America works, if only they’d tell us.

  5. Just wonderful! Nice move on Eddie’s books, too, Warren. Cheers!

  6. Wait, there were people who were not already in love with Helen Mirren?

  7. “The Long Good Friday”… she’ll make you a believer with that movie.

  8. The Goddess. One of the most beautiful women alive.

  9. Hey Percy. Harvey Pekar made it in America. It took awhile but he made it. I’m pretty sure his loyal readers had been reading him for a long time before he was a gleem in the eye of any readers outside of America.

  10. Pekar has had big admirers all along. One early episode of Drew Carey’s old sitcom showed Drew sitting on his couch reading an American Splendor collection.

    But there’s a tremendous inertia in big media. Splashy and stupid and profitable drowns out brilliant and quirky and non-commercial.

    I knew Mirren was a damnfineactress; didn’t know she was damn cool.

  12. God, what a babe.

  13. Man, if I were twenty years older…

  14. Mirren, RED, and Willis are mentioned in this New York Times article about Comic-Con:

  15. She’s a fucking goddess.

  16. I am 45 and she does it for me…no questions asked! probsbly couldn’t keep up with her!

  17. Convincing anyone to read Eddie Campbell’s work is by definition a public service to humanity.

  18. Percy try Googling. He received some marvelous heartfelt tributes all across the board. not mentions, wonderful tributes on how he touched so many people with his work…
    Harvey ended on a high note. He was doing great work. He was in a groove. Getting great recognition (13 page feature in the current JUXTAPOZ), and was cranking out terrific stories. Disclaimer, i was his editor on http://smithmag.net/pekarproject
