Unusual Tales - The Colt Born To Trouble

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

"The Colt Born To Trouble" is a 5-page story from Charlton's BLACK FURY #17 [1959].  Strictly animals in this particular story from Ditko's brief run on the series, as Black Fury rescues a young orphan colt who turns out to be quite a handful.

An entertaining enough diversion, with some nice art, although obviously not a subject that really plays to Ditko's strengths.

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

Download public domain comics, likely including the one this story is from
(scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies)
