SAN DIEGO, CA – June 6, 2011 – Ape Entertainment, along with American Greetings Properties, the intellectual property and outbound licensing division of American Greetings Corporation (NYSE: AM), today announced the Strawberry Shortcake classics issue No. 1 from 1985 is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Download directly by visiting http://itunes.apple.com/app/strawberry-shortcake-comics/id481026839.
Digitally recolored to enhance the fun and fruity colors that Strawberry Shortcake is known for, “The Great Pie Baking Contest” classic is available for the first time in digital format and features Strawberry, Huckleberry Pie, and all their friends. For more than three decades Strawberry Shortcake has been a favorite with moms and daughters for teaching wholesome values, going on fantasy adventures and proving that little girls can do big things.
RICHIE RICH CLASSICS #7 is now available on the iPhone, iPod-Touch, & iPad!
This issue sports a cover that was digitally recolored by JAMES NELMS. Nelms also designed and supplied the cover art for the CUT THE ROPE digital comic book.
The cover for Classics #7 was originally the cover for Richie Rich Success Stories #3, pictured to the left. We take great care when we digitally recolor these classic works to represent the feeling and the charm of the original work, but at the same time change it up a bit and give long time collectors a new look at an old favorite.
The rest of the issue is a 28 page collection of classic Richie Rich comics and gags.
The lead story, “Like a Pussycat” has been digitally recolored by LISA MOORE. Moore has previously done color work in the ‘all-new, all-different’ RICHIE RICH: RICH RESCUE series.
The remaining 23 pages are all carefully reproduced in black & white. Of particular note this issue is the entire 15-page story “The Mad Mad Big Big Race”, written by Ralph Newman with art by Warren Kremer and letters by Joe Rosen. It’s easy to see this story may have been partially inspired by the 1963 movie “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World”, which included a long and very chaotic cross country race.
