Unusual Tales - Misfits



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


From Charlton's OUTER SPACE #20 [1958] comes the 5-page "Misfits".

A mildly amusing story with a bit of a predictable "Twilight Zone" style twist ending, but Ditko's art really makes this one stand out.  The goofy looking aliens are wonderfully expressive, and there's just some nice design work on that first panel, and that building on page 4.
