I will be very busy tomorrow night handing out candy, so I am posting this a day early. This is my favorite Casper item, and one of my favorite items in the permanent collection. I purchased it with the intention of using it to hold the candy I give out, but it proved too small for that purpose. I still love the way it depicts Casper, and the fact that other Harvey characters are depicted on it as well.
I have been doing puzzles on Jigidi for years. While it is not the same as doing a real jigsaw puzzle, it is a good way to while away the time on a rainy day. I am very proud to present the first in what I hope will be a series of virtual puzzles, with images from the Harvey Mercheum and powered by Jigidi:
While I strive to keep the content of the Harvey Mercheum child safe, I acknowledge that my visitors are probably adult collectors like myself. As such, I wanted to share this post I found from back in February by Howard Decker:
This is a very exciting time for the Harvey Mercheum! First there was a trip to New York Comic Con, which has surpassed San Diego Comic Con for overall attendance, and now we have a second guest exhibit! Harvey Comics Facebook group user Michael Riley was kind enough to send in photographs of one of the rare story records made under the Parachute Records label, Richie Rich Mysteries of the Deep!
I was fortunate enough to be able to attend New York Comic Con on Thursday. It is impossible to describe how large this show is. I came back very tired, but with a backpack full of comic books from Victory Comics to show for my efforts. No new merchandise for the Harvey Mercheum I am afraid, but I did get to speak with Steve Savino again, and I got to meet Jordan Hembrough!
While I had a great time at New York Comic Con, I will probably not return next year, as there are other conventions I wish to attend. Maybe the year after…
I remember how excited I was when I found out that Richie Rich would be a Saturday morning cartoon. Of course the results were rather mediocre, but that did not stop me from watching it. Who would think that some day there would be no Saturday morning cartoons? And yet that is what has happened:
What a sad state of affairs…
Today’s exhibit was a somewhat unexpected find, and another example of an item in a different color scheme. I had previously posted a snapback hat, primarily turquoise in color. I recently found the same hat in yellow. It has the same embroidered characters in the same positions, and the same hang tag. Here is the exhibit:
