Every September 25th is National Comic Book Day! Read a comic book today and celebrate a truly American art form!
After being cancelled last year, today is Museum Day! Search for a participating museum near you, get tickets, and go visit for free!
Today is World Photography Day! I try to share my best photos year round on this website, but everyone can participate in this day by searching social media for posts using the tag #WorldPhotographyDay. Like, comment on and share the photos that resonate with you, and if you discover a photographer whose work you appreciate, Follow them as well!
Today is the rescheduled Free Comic Book Day (FCBD)! This is the closest thing there is to a holiday for comic book fans. I am just about to head out to my friendly local comic shop to see what I can get. Enjoy!
I missed acknowledging World Wide Web Day last year, sorry. As the Web turns 32 years old, visit the World Wide Web Foundation website, and don’t miss their post about young people changing the world!
Today is International Museum Day! The theme for 2021 is “The Future of Museums – Recover and Reimagine”. Museums have suffered under COVID restrictions, and a great deal of work lies ahead to prepare for reopening. I know I am looking forward to being able to visit museums in person again!
Today is World Intellectual Property Day! This year’s theme is “IP & SMEs: Taking your ideas to market”. The Harvey Mercheum is not a business, but the content of this website is still a form of intellectual property.
Today we have another “Richie Rich Sticker” sheet, this time with the “Richie in pain” stickers we saw back in November. It is interesting to note that the “Super Sticky” stickers were part number 4023, and both of these “Richie Rich Sticker” sheets are also 4023. It is also interesting how badly damaged the backing paper is. The bag is intact, so whatever method Laurie Import Ltd. used to repackage the stickers must have been rather rough!

Richie Rich Sticker, Richie in pain variant
These are the only two “Richie Rich Sticker” sheets in the permanent collection at this time. Did the Mr. Rich variant get the repackaging treatment? I do not know, but will keep searching!
Today also begins Preservation Week, with a theme of “Preserving Community Archives”. Take a moment to review the resources made available by the American Library Association.
Happy Easter from the Harvey Mercheum! Let’s take a moment today to look back at the only Easter-themed item in the permanent collection, the Richie Rich doll.
It’s been five years since I posted the Valentine’s Day Harvey Comics merchandise in the permanent collection. Let’s take a moment today to revisit these great items:
Celebrating Valentine’s Day, Harvey Style!
