Between 2007 and 2009, Leslie Cabarga and I had the privilege of assembling five volumes of classic Harvey Comics reprints for Dark Horse Books. These comics were an offshoot of Paramount’s Famous Studios cartoon creations and were initially written and drawn by their finest animators.
Now, Dark Horse has announced plans to continue reprinting classic Harvey Comics material on a regular basis beginning May 2010. The new format (which Leslie is art directing the covers, but neither he nor I are selecting the reprints) presents each Harvey character in 200-page trade paperback editions with every page in color, for $14.99. The first one devoted to Casper is available for pre-order here. If you like this stuff, it’s a bargain.
