The Last Great Adventure Strip: ‘Modesty Blaise and Peter O’Donnell’

The Last Great Adventure Strip: ‘Modesty Blaise and Peter O’Donnell’
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.

R.C. goes on at great length in his online magazine of news and reviews, history and lore, Rants & Raves, at RCHarvey.com.
