where Mykal has a new post with not one, but TWO Richie stories!

And now, to our fourth story of the day. This story scared the bejeebers out of me when I was little. But, I feel it is time to face my fears! Enjoy!

My younger self thought that Mr. Rich was dead and that his face had been removed and worn by a creepy monster (and this was years before the movie Face/Off!). I was so scared that I never finished the story to discover it was all in fun!

I still don’t understand why Cadbury has a Mr. Rich mask though. Was he trying to act like Mr. Rich turned into a monster? Why not just be a generic monster? How does one wear two masks? Seems awfully sweaty.

Ah, how amazing to build playhouses you can have adventures in everyday, what a cool life! What did you think?

Peewee actually talks! And Reggie hangs with the peasants…

It’s Peewee day at Richie Rich Comics Fan Club and we begin with a one pager. I can’t imagine a show I would rather see less than someone wiggling their ears. Thank goodness you get paid to see it!

And now, to the main event! Did you know that Peewee spoke in his first appearance? And, prepare for some name dropping, I heard from SID JACOBSON himself!! (applause, cheering, awed expressions at my coolness) that he decided it would make Peewee more interesting if he didn’t speak. Sid had previously edited Little Max, who also didn’t speak, and he liked how that worked. So now, you know!

And now, prepare to be shocked by a word bubble coming out of Peewee’s mouth! And there’s the added bonus of Reggie. Oh my. I don’t even have the urge to punch him today, he is just so ridiculous, one can only laugh and be happy he is not at your house!

A $2,000 cowboy outfit in 1960’s money? Would that be a $1,000,000 costume today? I love how Freckles asks snotty Reggie if he has a sore neck! Hee hee!

What did you think of Peewee speaking?

Richie creates a way for man to fly and check out the Harvey Mercheum!

There is a brand new blog in Richie/Harveyland, www.harveymercheum.com! Did you know that tons of fun merchandise was manufactured featuring Richie and other Harvey characters back in the glory days? From tiny cars to Halloween costumes to soaps and figurines, the Harvey Mercheum hopes to find and showcase them all! If you have any great Harvey items, submit pictures of them to the blog to preserve their glory for future generations and if you don’t, just check in to see all the cool stuff. The more Richie/Harvey blogs and information out there the better, so welcome Harvey Mercheum!

And now to today’s long and interesting story. Richie somehow very easily creates a flying gadget which leads to this statement of importance…

How is this possible? Read on…..

Excellent security screening there, Richard. The most important invention of the century and you trust it to someone whom you ASSUME someone else has checked credentials on? And I need a little backstory on how this Matt Harry swap happened in the first place. The real Matt Harry doesn’t even work for Rich Industries. How did this guy get in the building? And he just happens to be a crook engineer? And he just hangs out in Matt Harry’s faux office? It would have made more sense to me if he was in the vacationing fellow’s office, Jim Fulcrum, and just answered the phone and said he was in charge now. Curious indeed.

What did you think? Mr. Rich certainly got skinny in the last panel!
