Al Fago's Atomic Rabbit in "Who's The Fool?"

Building on the success of his creation Atomic Mouse, Al Fago duplicated the formula with Atomic Rabbit, the main difference being that Atomic Mouse got his powers from popping U-235 pills while Atomic Rabbit got his by munching on U-235 carrots. Either way, Fago's art is a marvel to behold. His characters have a unique angular design and the backgrounds at times resemble a Fisher-Price version of a Dali painting. Enjoy this disorienting tale from Atomic Rabbit #7 (June 1957, Charlton).
