Unusual Tales - The Greater Life



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

"The Greater Life" is a strange little 5-page story from Charlton's UNUSUAL TALES #14 [1958].

A very strange little story about a man who wakes from a three month coma and the changes he finds in the world.  I'm not sure I completely get it, so if anyone has any insights the comments field awaits.
