Funnies Farrago: Pioneering Cartoonist Jackie Ormes

Funnies Farrago: Pioneering Cartoonist Jackie Ormes
R. C. Harvey, pictured here with his signature rabbit (Harvey the rabbit), is a onetime cartoonist and all-time comics chronicler, critic, and all-around cheerleader for the art of cartooning. Cartooning is the visual-verbal art form, the pictorial blending of word and image, verbiage and pictures, which, together, conjure meanings neither one achieves alone without the other. R.C. goes on at great length in his online magazine of news and reviews, history and lore, Rants & Raves, at RCHarvey.com.
