A Sprawling Estate!

When I was a kid reading Richie Rich comic books, my favorite stories were the ones where Richie would explore parts of his mansion or grounds that he had never been to before. Can you imagine how cool that would be! I remember one story where he gets lost in a part of the mansion where there are rooms full of really cool, big toys. This issue had a little bit of that when Richie goes to swim in pool #14 and takes a short cut through a forest! Ah, somehow I never get tired of the endless explorations of a rich little boy!


The Last issue of Richie Rich Gems was about was about aliens and robots. This one is about giving money, and gems. There are 7 stories, 3 of which are full length and 4 which are one-pagers. The first story, “On the way to the ball” is the only new one of the bunch, and is about Richie and Gloria helping a bunch of kids go to the prom. “Richie’s Alphabet” goes through each letter and explains how it applies to Richie. The last story, “The mad mad big big race” is a 3-parter in which Richie and his mean cousin Reggie make a bet about who can travel around the world the fastest – all without using modern vehicles! As usual Reggie cheats and still loses to Richie and his good luck!

How I Rate This Issue:

  • Story: 4 stars – I thought all the stories, except for the first one, were cool and fun to read. Something about the new one, though, was just a dud!
  • Art: 3 stars – Richie Rich stories aren’t really known for their strong art, but they’re not terrible either. This issue was par in that department.
  • Fun Factor: 4 stars – Aside from the confusing first story, all the others were really fun to read! I loved the short gag stories, and thought that the race story was really cool!
