During my junior Year of High School, the only Item on my Birthday wish list was a copy of Duran Duran’s upcoming musical Offering. I was relentless in my Subtle Hinting (Ok OK! Maniacal Hounding! you Happy!?) on the Subject. My Mother was a part time substitute in our Local School District at the time and overheard two young peers of mine discussing just that but neither of those worthy gentlemen could correctly call to mind the Title of this forthcoming Opus. According to my long suffering Mum when she came up behind them, leaned in and said “Boys, it’s called Seven and the Ragged Tiger now let’s get back to the Lesson..” the stunned, reverential awe Pasquale is evincing in Panel 4 does happen in Real Life. And my Mother was insufferably pleased with herself for Several Days afterward as Well! BTW, I STILL have that Album too….Thanks Mom.
