Notable Notes: Richie and friends uncover a secret tomb in Egypt!

2 of my favorite subjects!

You probably don’t know this about me, but I love archeology – especially the Egyptian flavor. I find the study of ancient pharaohs in splendid tombs to be infinitely fascinating. I also love science fiction – yeah, I even have my own review web site. So when this issue combined both of those wonderful ideas into one story – well, let’s just say that it was right up my alley!


The last issue of this series I reviewed was #6 – so I’m going backwards here… that happens sometimes when you collect comics! But unlike that issue (which was one big story) this one contains 1 main story and 3 littler ones. In the main feature, “Just Deserts”, Richie and his gang of pals travels to Egypt in search of treasure indicated on an ancient scroll. They have a hard time finding the spot, but eventually discover an upside down buried pyramid! Once inside they discover a host of mummies – but not human ones! The whole tomb turns out to be an alien technology, and the gang runs into a bad guy, “The Stench”, who is trying to steal that technology! It’s a good thing they’ve got an abundance of wits on their side!

Besides the main story, this issue also includes a short one about Richie’s dog Dollar fighting off a gang of Hyenas with a hi-tech bone, Richie’s girlfriend Gloria opening a candy shop, and Professor Keenbean showing off some slightly imperfect new technology!

My 2 Cents:

  • Story: 3 stars – It was fun reading a variety of stories in this issue, but none of them were spectacular. All of them seemed to be average kid stories.
  • Art: 4 stars – The crisp, glossy art was fun to look at – and would probably really be enjoyed by kids!
  • Fun Factor: 3 stars – The good art wasn’t enough to make up for the mediocre stories and stilted dialogue.
