Unusual Tales - The Desert

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

"The Desert" is a 5-page story from Charlton's TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #4 [1957].  In this tale the Traveler turns his giant head north for a look at a story about isolation in the desolate Arctic. 

A decent enough story well told by Ditko, in particular the looming head of the Traveler.
