The Art of Harvey Comics Exhibit Announced
Later this month, Richie Rich, Casper the Ghost and the rest of the Harvey Comics crew will be the focus of a new exhibit in San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum.
According to Diamond’s industry news site, Scoop:
Beginning June 28, 2008 and running through November 30, the Cartoon Art Museum will host “Harvey Comics: From Richie Rich to Wendy the Witch: The Art of Harvey Comics,” an exhibit celebrating the art and characters including Casper, The Friendly Ghost; Wendy, The Good Little Witch; Richie Rich, The Poor Little Rich Boy; Hot Stuff, The Little Devil; Sad Sack; Joe Palooka; Little Dot; Little Audrey; Little Lotta, and many more. Original art from various Harvey comic books and merchandise by the likes of Warren Kremer and Steve Muffatti, who together defined the Harvey “look,” will be on display along with artwork by Ernie Colón, Sid Couchey, Howard Post, Fred Rhoads, Ham Fisher, Dom Sileo, Marty Taras, and many more.
There would seem to be a lot for Harvey Comics fans to like about this exhibit, but let’s hope they gloss over the ’90s film adaptations of Richie Rich and Casper the Friendly Ghost. *shudder*
