Unusual Tales - Not Normal
"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.
Odd little story about Peter Benton, a young man who has an abnormal streak of luck, which doesn't seem to be as good a thing as you'd think.
Not really the best of stories, and some of the artwork looks like it had some other hands in it. Overall one of the more understandable never-reprinted stories.
