Richie Rich was one of my favorite Harvey comics when I was a kid. Richie's extravagant possessions, like the snowball-throwing machine in our second story, were always so darn cool. The magic of the character was his unpretentiousness and generous character. For a rich kid, he was alright. In fact, he was such a nice kid it was hard to be jealous of his toys.Download THIS POST!
These next three stories are all the work of Harvey-master, Ernie Colón, who always drew the best Richie Rich stories. Whenever I recall my favorite RR stories, it is always Mr. Colón's work that I have cataloged in memory.Artist identification for today's post was confirmed by Harvey expert & cartoonist, Bill White, and (the man himself via Bill) Ernie Colón! Thanks, gentlemen!
Reginald Van Dough, Jr. was a great character, if for no other reason that he brought the devil out in Richie!
No one drew Cadbury the Butler like Ernie Colón.
