Unusual Tales - Clairvoyance

"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.

"Clairvoyance" is a 5-page story from Charlton's UNUSUAL TALES #9 [1957]. It's a story about a boy named David who gets some astounding powers in a high-voltage cyclotron accident, and how it affects his life.

Nice little story, I especially like how Ditko draws the child characters, including the large statue on the first page, and the panels of the other kids rejecting him because of his mental powers.

Some links to check out:
