Richie Rich

by Soner Ön

32p, color, 7"x10"


The farce of capitalism pretty much rests on the surface of old Richie Rich comics in a spunky sortof brainless way. Soner Ön does it one better, and makes it count,  painstakingly transforming Richie into a black kid on 32 vintage comic covers and suddenly the Poor Little Rich Boy gets wrested into a dialogue about race and wealth. This is when pop culture wrangling gets smart and important. -EF
