Unusual Tales - Adrift In Space


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

"Adrift In Space" is a 5-page science fiction story from Charlton's MYSTERIES OF UNEXPLORED WORLDS #8 [1958], wherein Captain Crewes is left adrift in space after a mutiny by his men and flashes back to the events that led him there, starting years ago when he first got the years-long mission to explore strange new wolds, through various adventures and onto his decision to extend the mission without telling his crew why.

A nice little story, with a really good opening page, and the snippets of the adventures the ship went through are well done.
