Today we begin with a bit of weird, modern Richie fun. Chris commented on the last post how weird it would be to see Richie with a cellphone and viola! I present, Richie, with a gold iphone!
New issues of Gems were published by Ape/Kidzoic in 2012 that contained old, re-colored stories, new stories drawn in the new way (not my cup of tea) and NEW stories drawn by Ernie Colón and written by Sid Jacobson. This is from one of the new stories in Gems Winter Special. I can post the story if you’d like to see it, just let me know in the comments below.
And now to a story I love that was in one of my original Richies that is so loved the cover fell off long ago and I have no idea which issue it is! It’s funny how the first few comics you read and re-read back in the day seem like THE classic Richie stories, although to others, they are brand new to them! This is a quintessential Richie story for me and Reggie’s spazzing out face is my favorite!
Go Harkins! Way to save the day!
And now we go to yet another Richie/Reggie relation, popping up out of the woodwork, offering his fortune to one of the two boys. Why do these men never have anything else to do with their money?
A.) Why not have a kid at some point and give your fortune to your own kid?
B.) Why not give your fortune to charity? These kids need no extra money!
C.) Why not split the fortune in two? Why the competition?
D.) Why not travel the world and blow all the money you spent a lifetime accumulating? It’s your money!
This Uncle is definitely the warmest and cuddliest out of the Uncle stories, despite Reggie almost killing him with the arrow!
E-V-I-L-K-I-D indeed! And if you like this story, there’s plenty more where that came from!
What did you think? What are your favorite “classic Richie” stories?
