Unusual Tales - They Say It's Haunted



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

"They Say It's Haunted" is a 5-page story from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #39 [1958].  It's one of those stories that doesn't so much end as it does stop, if there weren't an "End" banner in the last panel I'd think there had to be another page.

Not too bad visually on Ditko's end.  There's not much in the settings for him to work with, but he does a good job in the few places where there's a chance, and he does a good job with the characters throughout.
