Unusual Tales - The Time Chamber





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

From Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #11 [1959] comes the 5-page "The Time Chamber".

Obviously another variation on time travel, this time an assistant of a scientist continuing the experiments after the scientist dies, but using the machine for his own selfish reasons before working out all the problems.

A few decent bits of storytelling, but overall not one of Ditko's best from the era.  Something looks really different about the inking in several parts of the story.

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

  1. As one becomes older, one's priorities change.

    What is important at eighteen is not necessarily worth passed gas at thirty.

    Leo found that out too late.
    He has to find the right priority now, and he had better step on it!
