R.C. Harvey photoThis will be the final Rants 'n' Raves entry to appear on GoComics.com, bringing to an end a fine long run of almost 2,000 posts.

Comics historian and cartoonist R.C. Harvey has long maintained his own rich and often-updated website RCHarvey.com, and continues to do so. Since November 2006 he has been sharing here selected posts from that site's cornucopia -- information and insights on comics strips, comic books, editorial cartoons, cartoon book reviews, updates on cartoonists from around the world, comics and cartoon-related news from the movie world, the state of the business of comics (book publishing, syndication, magazines, comic-cons), with many journeys into the history of comics and cartoons, and profiles of artists both contemporary and departed.

Harvey is a prolific writer. His website includes: Rants & Raves, with news, reviews, and commentary on comics and cartooning; Harv's Hindsights, featuring occasional long-form articles on individual cartoonists and various aspects of cartooning; and Books, with descriptions of, and ordering mechanisms for, his numerous volumes including Meanwhile...A Biography of Milton Caniff, Creator of Terry and the Pirates and Steve Canyon; Milton Caniff Conversations; Accidental Ambassador Gordo: The Comic Strip Art of Gus Arriola; Children of the Yellow Kid; The Art of the Funnies: An Aesthetic History; and Cartoons of the Roaring Twenties.

It has been a pleasure working with the esteemed Mr. Harvey for, lo, these many years, and enjoying the info and images he has shared on this blog. Thank you, Bob! Long may you rave. And rant. And write.
