Harvey Pekar's Last Interview?

One of the stars of our film, Frank M. Young, interviewed Harvey Pekar in 2010.  According to James Gill: "I love the first 45 seconds, in which Harvey enacts a final Pekar 1-pager for us. A month before Harvey Pekar died, Frank did a skype interview with him for a series of articles he was writing about the creative processes of comic book creators. Here are the first 7 minutes of that conversation."

We think this may be the last interview that Harvey ever gave. For those of you who may not know about Pekar, he was the author of many autobiographical comics as well as the subject of a 2003 film, American Splendor.
