A return visit from our old friend Joe, el Presidente de El Squalid!

I love the character of Presidente Joe from El Squalid and was so happy to find a follow up story. If you’ve never read Part 1 of this tale, click below:

Snerdflinger Estate!!! Hee Hee, that makes me laugh! Almost as good as the story with Snerdly Gerp. Clearly, I like the word Snerd. Actually, this reminds me of another Snerdly!


Have you ever heard the story of George Washington throwing silver nickels across the Potomac? I haven’t. I only knew the wooden teeth and the cherry tree. But, so handy there happened to be a vault filled with silver nearby for Joe.

The president of the neighboring county is arriving and he must meet his ROWBOAT! Hee hee heeeeee!

What a cute story, I wonder if there is a third story of Presidente Joe I will happen upon one day. Do you like Joe?

Richie and Casper meet the Good-Bye Man! (aka The one with the underground people)

I received a special request for this very interesting tale, it provides a lot of food for thought! Let’s begin with Irona cleaning up the Rich mansion for a special visitor, and thank goodness because the mansion is always such a pigsty. :)

IMG_1704 IMG_1705 IMG_1706 IMG_1707 IMG_1708 IMG_1709 IMG_1710 IMG_1711 IMG_1712 IMG_1713 IMG_1714 IMG_1715 IMG_1716 IMG_1717 IMG_1718 IMG_1719

Oh my, so much to discuss! This is one of those issues with a very terrifying cover, The Goodbye Man kidnaps Richie! But, then he turns out to be just a goofy, non-scary robot.

And the Riches are strangely accessible; just clank your way onto the estate and they leave you and an unguarded Richie all alone. And you can just pick up any pay phone and call Richard Rich who will pick up the phone himself! I may call Richard Branson right now and see if this whole easy dialing up of rich people is true.

A time machine? Of course I have one! Who doesn’t?

And now to the really thought provoking stuff. How are these underground people conceived? Is it like Brave New World and they’re all made in factories? If yes, for what purpose? If I’m a robot, why would I keep making new humans in a lab that I have to take care of? Why not let them just die off?

What TV shows are they watching? Are there some humans that get to leave their little rabbit hole houses, have proper jobs and act? Or do they just watch old series from 500 years prior? Or perhaps they watch robot acted/directed/produced shows about people sitting around in underground rooms eating Soylent Green.

Why do they need pills to help them sleep? They have nowhere to be, surely their bodies would just sleep when they need to.

And, yes, let’s let this random human tell us that we need to take control of our world. When we have absolutely no skills and no knowledge on how to do anything! We haven’t even had to work with another human or speak to another human in our lives! What could go wrong with creating a new society? I have a feeling these people will all starve to death in a matter of hours. Or annoy each other in a matter of minutes and violence will ensue.

In good news, Richie escapes and heads for home! What did you think of this craaaazy story?

The sad tale of when an amnesia ray causes Richie to get yelled at by his parents

One of the great things about Richie stories is the loving relationship he has with his parents. One does wonder why the Riches only had one child with all their wealth and hundreds of staff, but perhaps they foresaw the wrangling and fighting that always accompanies extremely rich siblings running the family empire so they figured this was best.

In this story though, we see the scary side of Richard. I remember hating this story when I was young because he SCREAMS at poor Richie. Even Cadbury is a jerk. But, it is all because they have amnesia, so read on to discover how this strangeness occured…

Oh, how I hate this frame!!!

WAAA! Poor Richie!

And, if you like reading stories where Richard is a big meanie, check out:



In other news, it is interesting that not only does the ray cause Amnesia, but the Memory ray also turns your hair from orange to blonde!

How weird was it to see Cadbury sticking his tongue out? Such a rapscallion! But, we have seen him ill-behaved before:


What did you think of this frightening tale?




2 year anniversary! Woot woot! And Richie & Gloria discover the Art Room!

TWO YEARS of Richie Rich Comics Fan Club! Whoooooohooooo!


I got so slacky this year, I didn’t think I would make it, but hurrah! Thank you lovely readers for keeping me going! And as always, I will make my yearly plea for comments, it makes my day when I get a notification that someone has commented! Just tell me what you think of the story, of Richie, an old comics memory, whatever, I want to hear it all, I love hearing other’s thoughts & opinions.

And, while I am repeating myself, did I tell you how my favorite Richie stories involve Richie exploring the house? I did? 900 times? You’re right! And today, we have my FAVORITE Richie exploring the house story. And we even find out why no one knows all the rooms in the Rich mansion, and why they can never all be on a map.


IMG_1572 IMG_1573 IMG_1574 IMG_1575 IMG_1576 IMG_1577 IMG_1579 IMG_1580 IMG_1581 IMG_1582 IMG_1583

How amazing is this house? Who thought of making crazy ceilings and walls? Who knew there were trap doors into Regina and Cadbury’s rooms? And most importantly, why can’t Regina put lipstick on? I do it every day, it’s not difficult.

And who is paying the carpenters? No wonder no one has mapped every room in the Rich mansion, they keep adding on! Ooooh, perhaps the beatnik artists squatting in the mansion tell the carpenters what to build! That’s where the crazy ceilings and walls come from; hippies who draw up architectural plans while they are high as a kite! I have solved the mystery!

Yes, the ending makes no sense, how can a person buy a destroyed room of a house? Surely there is a million dollars lying on the floor anyway so it’s basically free. And Richard was not much help, oh the room is destroyed so you can’t use it. Let’s ignore the fact that there are 950 unused rooms in my house that could be used for an art show whether or not they explicitly say “Art Room” on the door!

But, glop art or not, I love this story and I only wish there had been a Richie Rich Mansion comic series where we could have explored the house every month. Sob…

I think I have posted all the major exploring the house stories, but if you remember another one, do let me know!







Happy Anniversary and tell me Richie things you’re thinking in the comments! :)

Richie attends the Snob Hill school and gets pummeled by the local bully!

I love today’s stories as they show us a less affected Richie than in the later years. He’s still sweet and smart and helpful, but in a much more naive way. In this first story, he honestly doesn’t want to hurt Reggie’s feelings. WHAT????!!! Reggie has no feelings!!

IMG_0796 IMG_0797 IMG_0798 IMG_0799 IMG_0800

I like how there is always a little blonde girl in a red dress heading into any school you might be attending. :)

And I’m very impressed at the technical computer training Richie got at the public school. Or perhaps it was from the school before the public school as he appeared to just be transferring there. It’s interesting how one can just not show up to school and go to another school for the day and no one cares.

Richie Rich comics predict the future in so many stories, but here, with a virtual professor and a machine to record and take notes for you, they have done it again!

If you liked this story of a snobby school, don’t forget to read this one:


And now we have a fantastic story where Richie actually gets his butt kicked! I love him and don’t wish him harm, but it is very annoying that in every story he wins every prize, dodges every bullet, beats up entire gangs of adult crooks without batting an eyelash. I like seeing him being normal for once. Although his hoity-toity gym is far from normal!

IMG_0801 IMG_0802 IMG_0803 IMG_0804 IMG_0805

This gym must have been designed by Aunt Novoo Rich. And Richard gently toned it down.

And if you like Richie getting into fights with tough boys, you will want to read this:

Mayda Munny and the Haunted Playhouse and Richie gets a frightningly swelled head!

We had a request for a Mayda Munny story and I am happy to oblige. Enjoy!

IMG_1544 IMG_1545IMG_1546IMG_1547IMG_1548

Wow, that is pretty risky to move an entire house, Mayda could have been killed just for Richie to be snarky. Not on board with this revenge, Richie, not cool.

I am boggled by the dimensions of Gloria’s body. Her butt must be miniscule to not show in her tiny skirt, yet her legs are like tree trunks. Richie is clearly a leg man.

And now, attack of the giant headed people!!!!

IMG_1552 IMG_1554 IMG_1555 IMG_1556 IMG_1557

“It’s me, Dad, I was kidnapped!” Only Richie Rich can say that and have it be a casual, throwaway line. I’m surprised Richard didn’t say, “Kidnapped? Well, la de da!” And how does Richie drag two full grown adults into a plane! What??? How??? And why? Just leave them on the abandoned island and call the estate police.

I wonder what happens if you use the potion on a really ugly person? Do they become a supermodel for one minute?

And, if you like stories about drinking a potion and turning into a monster, check this one out:


The tiny Rich family and their tiny mansion face peril in “The Mini Mansion Caper”!

Happy summer! I received a request for a favorite story that a reader hadn’t seen in years and I am so happy when I can provide a walk down memory lane. This cover is one of my favorites.

2015-06-22 13.03.55

Hi, me! Enjoy!

2015-06-22 13.17.48 2015-06-22 13.17.53 2015-06-22 13.17.56 2015-06-22 13.17.59 2015-06-22 13.18.03 2015-06-22 13.18.11 2015-06-22 13.18.15 2015-06-22 13.18.18 2015-06-22 13.18.21 2015-06-22 13.18.25

I’m not sure I get the plot beginning. Was Conrad the carpenter play acting as well? And if so, for whose benefit? No one was overhearing him on the phone except you and I. There is nothing to rob in the mini-mansion. Surely he built all the mini money and has all the floor plans of the house already. Or was the carpenter played by Cadbury or Bascomb? Do tell me your interpretation…

Is there an old story you haven’t seen in years that you’d like me to look for?
