Unusual Tales - Forbidden Planet

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

"Forbidden Planet" is a 2-page story from Charlton's MYSTERIES OF UNEXPLORED WORLDS #10 [1958].

Not much to say about this one that you can't get just from reading the brief story, but I do like that first page, with the full page space shot and two inset panels, which nicely contrast in the level of detail they show.

Some links to check out:
