Ooh la la! Richie joins a Parisian street gang and we celebrate 30 days of Richieness!

Happy 30 days of Richie Rich Comics Fan Club blog existance!

Richie30days

Who could have predicted, all those long days ago when I started this little blog that I would have one subscriber, let alone my awesome ELEVEN (Woot! Woot!), and imagine how many there will be in 60 days! In a year! We will have subscribers bursting out of ceiling vaults!

And there are 5-20 fans every day who come and check out Richie stories from around the globe! Look at all the fans from these countries coming to our fan club!

And remember, if you view the site on your smart device, you can go horizontal and make the pages bigger without having to click on each page. And if you are a subscriber, click on the blog title in the email to take you to the site as the pages are crisp on the net, but not in the email.

To thank you all for making this so fun and worthwhile; I give you a story that is not in my usual wheelhouse of Richie explores the mansion, Mrs. Rich has an adventure, Richie looks at a flower…. It is exciting and violent and has villains. And my hottie Cadbury shows off some incredibly sweet moves.

Just imagine you are Marie-Claudette or Jean-Paul walking down les rues de Paris and you run into this thug!

Quelle horror! Enjoy and thank you for coming to the coolest fan club in town. 🙂

It is interesting how the gang members, especially Le Shiv, are wearing stereotypical French berets and striped shirts, yet their gang leader appears to be wearing Aquaman/The Flash hybrid Underoos.  Qu’est-ce que vous pensez?

  1. I’d forgotten this story, except for the last two panels.

  2. Ze Mastor says:

    Hey! I had that very same issue, a long time ago. I think I appreciate the story more now! Looks like Ernie Colon’s work. It has just enough cartoon style to look correct in a kid’s comic, yet there certain panels that betray the work of a fine illustrator (look at the boots on The Arachnid).

    Things that make you go “Hmmmmm”:

    1) Where the heck is Richville? We thought it was in the United States, yet the flight from Paris to Richville is only 5 hours. It takes a minimum of 7 hours to fly from Paris to just about any city on the East Coast. In order to spend only 5 hours flying from Paris, where is Richville? Somewhere in North Africa? Or near Tehran, Iran (back when it was a US-friendly country under the Shah)? Or somewhere in the Soviet Union?

    2) Does The Arachnid look like a more menacing version of H.R. Pufnstuf? Especially Page 3, Panel 2?

    3) Why is Mr. Rich carrying 50 million dollars in cash while on vacation? It’s 1974, and France is a civilized, modern country that has international banking, credit cards and money transfers. Why would anyone haul cash around, since he’d need to get that converted to francs anyway?

    4) Next-to-last-page, when The Arachnid has a gun pointed at Richie. Where did Cadbury come from? He flew around the corner at light speed and The Arachnid didn’t notice him until Cadbury started punching his lights out?
