    Harvey Comics was founded by Alfred Harvey in New York City in 1941. Alfred was joined by his brothers Robert B. Harvey and Leon Harvey, and they focused on licensed characters mostly from the animation company Famous Studios (from Paramount Pictures). Harvey Comics is also know to be one of the pioneers in 3-D comics in the 1950s. One of their original superheroes is deemed to be the first 3-D hero - Captain 3-D.
