I still don't think I quite understand how huge comics have been. I've never even heard of Harvey comics

Harvey did Richie Rich, Little Lotta, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and many others.

And congrats to Robert L. Fish Award winner Evan Lewis.

I still ask me why green.

Did Harvey Comics do Little Lulu? I loved Lulu for the many puns.
Why was the Hornet green? Did he have a sidekick? It's the cover art that still gets me, it's so creative. Add my congrats to Evan Lewis for the award. Schuyler/Sherlock wins in many ways.

Some hornets actually are green, Deka...why a green one in particular as the mascot/identity, I'm not sure, other than it sounds good.

And echoing Captain Robert! Congratulations...is it a Poe statue, or a Schlock Holmes?

Charles, comics were selling easily in the millions at midcentury...lots of major as well as minor publishers...Harvey was a fairly major one.

I just saw the news, CONGRATULATIONS on the Robert L. Fish Award! Absolutely could not happen to a nicer guy.

Evan Lewis said...

Thanks folks. Skyler Hobbs, of course, is a great admirer of Schlock Homes.

Deka Black said...

ooops, Thanks Todd. ;)
