Unusual Tales - Casy's Kiss



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

"Casy's Kiss" is a 2-page short from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #40 [1959].

A nice little fantasy vignette about diving and mermaids, I think the first page is really strong with the texture for the underwater effect.

Some links to check out:
Buy Ditko's creator-owned work

scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
