This was the first time I read one of your graphic comics. It captures Harvey very well.
The art work and dialog are excellent. I saw little brass Harvey at the Cleveland Heights Library a week or two (2) ago. He is thinner than the Monopoly characters at main branch of the Cleveland Public Library’s Eastman Garden. Both are very nice brass sculptures. I liked that the meaningless conversation about the breakfast was not disclosed. The drawing of the toast and eggs made me hungry.
