Unusual Tales - The Last Laugh

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

"The Last Laugh" is a 6-page story from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #32 [1957].

An amusing little science fiction trifle about a college practical joker who decides to exploit a brainy classmates belief in the possibility of time travel to craft his biggest prank.  Some very nice Ditko faces on the characters in this one.
