I must vigorously disagree with these prejudiced & unnecessary comments. And
in addition these views are in a minority. The Richie Rich character has
appeared in one of the most successful comics of all time.  He was
illustrated by very talented artists such as Ernie Colon & Warren Kramer.
The Harvey comics tended to appeal to younger children, not the 'mature'
audience that now is interested in Scrooge McDuck. Hence they tended to be
more light weight but nonetheless of high quality artwork.  Please direct
such scathing abuse to more worthy targets.
