Comic Book Cats, number 23: Atom the Cat #10

Comic Book Cats, number 23: Atom the Cat #10, drawn by Maurice Whitman, published by Charlton Comics in December 1957.
Atom the Cat was a funny animal comic about a stray cat who accidentally absorbs radiation from a nuclear reactor and gains superpowers. Donning a cape, Atom sets out to fight for liberty & justice, as well as to get all the fish he can eat.
Several of the Atom the Cat stories were drawn by Maurice Whitman, a Golden Age artist who worked at a number of publishers in a variety of genres throughout the 1940s and 50s, demonstrating a range of styles. In the 1960s he did some work for Warren Publishing. Towards the end of his life, Whitman also did portraits and landscapes. He passed away in 1983 at the age of 60.
