Like almost all worthwhile comics news, you first heard about a relaunch of the Harvey Comics properties – including Casper the Friendly Ghost, Richie Rich, Wendy the Good Little Witch, and other well known classic children’s characters – right here at Bleeding Cool (pip pip). While our prediction of Green Hornet’s inclusion in the mix hasn’t come true (though it might yet be), the rest of those characters are indeed coming back in May from Canadian publisher Joe’s Books. Franco Aureliani, Geoffrey Golden, Kirstie Shepherd, Landry Quinn Walker, Cesare Asaro, and Art Baltazar are the creative team on a single series clled Harvey Hits featuring all of those characters. Here’s the solicit, discovered on PreviewsWorld:

Now all that’s left is to wait for the eventual DC Comics style gritty reboot, where Richie Rich is used as an analogue for Donald Trump. If that happens, remember you heard that here first too.
