Unusual Tales - He's Coming For Me!

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

"He's Coming For Me!" is a 5-page story from Charlton's UNUSUAL TALES #9 [1957], about a businessman named Prentice who finds out that a man he framed has escaped from prison using an invisibility formula.  A pretty clever little twist, and Ditko's art is really good, with some tight close-ups and dense storytelling really reinforcing the paranoia of the story.

But before the story, some links:
Reprint of 1975 classic WHA now available

SHADE and other DC stories book on the way
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
