Sammy the Whammy, Boy Magician-Bill Kresse-1966

Here's an odd late entry into the pantheon of comic book magicians, found as a series of back-up one-pagers in various 1966 Archie comics. Known for their uniform art style, here Archie deviates completely with very different, newspaper strip-style artwork. No credits that I can spot anywhere but reminds me of the work of Fred Fredericks, who started drawing MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN around that same time. Pretty sure it's Bill Kresse, though, who later did the SUPER DUPER newspaper strip.
