Unusual Tales - One Way Trip
"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.
It's an odd little fantasy story that starts with a man getting news of an almost certainly fatal diagnosis from a doctor, and follows him from there. It's a very good example of the body language in Ditko's art, look at the final panel compared to the earlier panels of the lead character. Also some great close-ups of the eyes.
