So wait a second…

…you’re gonna turn up your nose at this outfit:

…when you normally dress like this:

…you drive one of these:

…you talked your butler into joining you on this:

…and, as noted before, you own one of these horrible things:

You sure draw the line at the oddest places, Richie Rich.

Also, you say stuff like this. I mean, what the hell.

    Richie Rich, Steampunk before steampunk was… well, not cool… popular on the internet?

  • Tom Cherry says:

    That’s what he gets for going to Liberace’s tailor!

    Yes! Thank you, thank you, thank you for linking to your previous post (what I affectionately refer to as the damn-best-meta-analysis-of-a-comic-cover-conceived-by-the-human-mind)

    And viewing those covers in sequence reminds me of just what a huge cankled freak Richie is. I wonder if he’d ever attend an Occupy protest in a Guy Fawkes mask? Y’know, just for hijinks and all.

  • I’m surprised that no one’s done a Richie Rich/Mitt Romney comic cover spoof yet. Unless I haven’t stumbled upon it on the internet yet.
    I mean, the internet is pretty big….

    Maybe it’s because the pink is clashing with his tie? Or maybe because he saw the price tag and it’s only $10,000 (and 99 cents). What is this, Men’s Wearhouse?

  • IvoryTower says:

    Clearly it’s because pink and gold clash. Duh.

    I love his little Casper bike horn!

  • Casie says:

    Super fun!
    I can’t stop staring at Cadbury’s anti-gravity hat and Reginald’s spooky picture.

    Goddammit, Mikester-san, don’t go twisting my words and make it seem like I’m defending the little fucker, whose head should be on a diamond-tipped spike, butI think that rather than turning up his nose at said outfit he’s actually squinting at its brilliance.

    Seriously. I’d read that comic. Richie Rich’s head ona pike? With maybe five or six issues preceding where Mr. and Mrs. Rich spend time in the Conciergerie, dealing with Robespierre? Lead on!

  • Randal says:

    Personally, I thought that the Richie Rich: Diamonds series was lacking the pathos that was evident in the Richie Rich: Success series, not to mention the intense characterization that was a hallmark of the Richie Rich: Bank Books series and Richie Rich: The Poor Little Rich Boy series. Since the Super Richie series was out of continuity, I won’t comment on that.

    (sweet baby jesus…I just wikied how many series there actually are…)

  • Sarah says:

    Well, DUH. You can’t wear pink and red that close together. Obviously Richie knows that.

    There’s a Mr. Rich? For some reason, I always assumed Richie was a Bruce Wayne-style orphan.

  • Nat Gertler says:

    If I wore that outfit, I’d keep the price tag on. Not to return it, just because it’s the best part of the outfit.

  • If this site becomes nothing more than a series of richie rich covers, I will probably keep reading it.

  • Prankster says:

    Speaking of current events, I’d like to point out that one of the lead bankers implicated in the LIBOR scandal is named “Rich Ricci”, because apparently we are all living in a hacky comic book.

  • MrJM says:

    I think that Richie is just seeing what it will look like when he wears his monocle.
