Cosmo the Merry Martian #3
In answer to some requests, here is issue #3 of the short-lived Archie Comics series, Cosmo the Merry Martian, published in 1958 and '59. It was drawn (and written?) by the late Bob White.
Cosmo was a funny, well-illustrated comic book, and it's too bad it only ran for six issues. I've noticed that over the years, even though Archie Comics published titles outside of its core Archie grouping, with some exceptions most of those other comics just don't have the permanence of Archie. I've never known if it was because the comics didn't sell, or because the company's heart wasn't in anything but its bread-and-butter.
I posted Cosmo #1 in Pappy's #794, and #2 in Pappy's #907.
