The company was founded by Alfred Harvey in 1941, after buying out Brookwood Publications. It specialized in creating comics featuring licensed characters.
Many of the comics produced used characters produced by Famous Studios including: Herman and Katnip, Little Audrey, Baby Huey and Casper the Friendly Ghost.
In 1959, Harvey purchased the right to Famous Studios' characters. Although the company did produce comics in a variery of genres, Casper the Friendly Ghost proved to be their biggest asset.
Following a gradual decline Harvey stopped publishing in 1982 at which time founder Alfred Harvey also retired.
