This second issue of Cosmo, a new series by Archie Comics, is an adventurous and funny comic book with perfect fun for an all-ages audience. It is easy to see how this series is very much targeting a young audience and I think that they are doing that right. After reading this issue in particular, I am sure children who read comics will love this.

In this issue, we see our group of Martians and Earthling, Max, attempting to escape the theme park overrun by monsters. Along the way, there is a lot of hilarious dialogue between all of the characters, but specifically between Cosmo and Max. It is clear that they will continue to be a duo that will deliver a lot of laughs in further issues. The writing is entertaining and exciting while also being easy to read. The story may be a little generic but it is really fresh in a lot of ways.

The artwork is beautiful and detailed which pulls you into the story maybe more than the writing. It may look like artwork to a children’s comic at first glance, but Tracy Yardley’s art is crisp and intricate, especially in the action scenes. There is a lot of color throughout the issue that perfectly compliments the Martians and their outer space adventures.

Overall, this issue a great follow up to the debut issue and definitely added a lot more excitement. This issue made it clear that this team knows what they are doing and what they want to achieve going forward. They are succeeding already in creating a hilarious and adventurous comic book that an audience of all ages will definitely enjoy.
