    Richie Rich

    The new manga richie rich with his gun shooting buttler and his ninja robot maid!

    Edit: OK it's not as manga like as a thought but it's still nothing like the classic version.

    Looks like a younger and friendlier Johnny Quest. I don't know that I'd describe the style as manga though, more like modern cartoon style instead of the usual comic style.

    Dunno what type of manga you've been reading or looking at, cause that isn't even CLOSE to looking Japanese....

    They turned Casper into a demon fighter and teamed him up with a devil kid and Wendy the Witch....who's now a punk rock girl?....

    That's actually kinda badass....

    That's red hot from harvey comics. He's been around for along time but didn't look like that.

    By the way the next casper movie is going to be based on that comic!

    Having just finished reading the Richie Rich FCBD issue, this update or re-imagining or whatever is just as terrible as it looks. The art is pretty bad, with proportions looking odd and characters seeming to have the wrong expression at times. And it's hard to tell how old the 'kids' are supposed to be. Based on height and how they're acting, they look to be about 10 or so...but the token female kid is drawn far too "developed" to be that young. The story is also one of the dumbest things I've read in awhile, with annoying main characters, bad dialogue and a villain who makes no sense whatsoever, from his motivations to his use of electrical powers to steal energy from a volcano (and shoot fireballs!). Although, I must admit that "Yes, yes, yes! I shall drink your juice, oh sweet cavern of conductivity" is a pretty funny line.

    I have no great love for Richie Rich, and no problem with re-imagining older properties, but this is awful. I realize it's aimed at kids, but I think even children would find it insulting to their intelligence.

    ...It's Richie Rich. It's not like it can get too much worse.
