Description

    Warren Kremer - Original Cover Art for Richie Rich #4 (Harvey, 1961). In November 1960, Harvey began publishing Richie Rich, a book which was an instant hit with the fans and eventually became a gold mine for the company. Many other series and spin-offs featuring the character have been published since. This nugget is a very early cover of Richie Rich, drawn by the artist most commonly associated with the character, Warren Kremer. The overall size is 9.5" x 14" with a 7" x 10.5" image area. The art shows some slight signs of aging, especially along the top area behind the logo and indicia, which are not the originals, and seem to have been attached at a later date. The replacement photostats show some extreme signs of aging and have discolored the art behind them. Still, none of this detracts from the wealth of charm and eye-appeal of this rare gem. A real prize for fans of the poor little rich boy, this is the earliest Richie Rich cover known to exist!
