Reading Room NORGE BENSON "Plummeting to Pluto"

Cosmo Corrigan was apparently caught in a Polar Vortex...
...and immediately replaced in Planet Comics by this guy, who encounted a whole different group of Plutonians!
Illustrated by Al Walker, who spent his entire comics career at Fiction House, this debut tale from Planet Comics #12 (1941) presents a somewhat less snarky (though no less humorous) version of the "Earthman on Pluto" concept shown in Cosmo Corrigan., mixing alien versions of both Arctic and Antarctic animals with total disregard to anything even remotely resembling exobiology!
But it is fun, and that's all that matters!
And it managed to survive for 19 more issues, some of which you'll see here over the winter months...
