A funny thing I’ve noticed lately while compiling these stories is that often a Richie cover will really catch your attention and you start getting excited about where the corresponding story may go. Sometimes it meets or exceeds your expectations, and other times you have no idea what the story and the cover have in common.
Here’s a little example: How cool does this cover look? What kind of story might go with this? It seems very modern and like Richie might see a bunch of bad things happening at once on TV and rush off with Cadbury to try and fix them was my thought.
Turns out it was just advertising this one pager:
Huh? Your multi-million dollar TV wall blows out, leaving you in a room of broken glass, but you’re smiling because it makes an R shape? Curious indeed.
And now to our story today; from this cover I was very excited to see baby Richie and his cute little cartoon tush, but the cover was a bit misleading. It’s still a fun story though, it just requires a bit of an expectation adjustment! Enjoy!
Hurumpf! No cute baby Richie at all. Strange. But, how cool is the tuxedo blimp/bow tie combo? I love it!
