Richie Rich #1 is out now!

I'm a little late in posting this, but this month saw the release of the re-imagined "Richie Rich" comic book that is being published by Ape Entertainment. The best part about the new series (to me anyway) is that I had a hand in writing it. I wrote a one page segment called "Professor Keenbean's Corner" that is included in the first issue (drawn by the masterful James Silvani).

This is a significant milestone for a couple of reasons. First, it's the first time I've written a comic script that was drawn by someone that I've never spoken to or met (though I hear James is a real stand-up guy as well as a heck of an artist). Secondly, this marks the first time that a freelance comic piece I've written was actually published (and I didn't pay for it!).

Anyway, this actually is the first of four installments of "Professor Keenbean's Corner" that I have written for Ape, and each will be included in the first four issues of "Richie Rich." Richie Rich #1 is available at comic stores everywhere now or you can order it online. Also, check out this great review of it by Chris Barat.
