Richie Rich meets Blackbeard! And Nixon (kinda sorta).

Wow, this is quite a tale with many interesting characters! We have a Richard Nixon clone who is called Uriah Heap, which I only knew as a 70’s band, but which apparently is a Dickens story where Uriah Heap is the original brown-nosing “Yes man”. Although, he is not very full of yesses in this story.

The quality is not the best, but it’s long and hearty me harties, so set sail and enjoy!

Ooooooh, so that’s why his last name was Index, so that his machine could have the TIME acronym, ooooh….

My, Blackbeard was a nice fellow in this story! Nothing like the villain he was supposed to be. Although, I just looked him up on Wikipedia and it says there is no proof that he ever murdered anyone, so perhaps he was a likeable fellow.  I did not read anything about him having a tattoo and the Mom with a heart tattoo seems very tame. But, if he was the first guy to have a Mom with a heart, I’m sure Mrs. Teach was very flattered.

What did you think?

    The 15-page adventure stories like this have always been my favorites. When I started reading Richie Rich comics in 1975, Harvey was publishing many of their titles with adventure covers. When they switched to humor covers I was disappointed; at the time, I didn’t realize the humor covers had been there for decades before I started reading them.
