Unusual Tales - The Hostile Planet

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

"The Hostile Planet" is a 5-page story first published in Charlton's SPACE ADVENTURES #27 [1959], detailing two visits of the peace loving people of Neptune to Earth, with similar but increasingly dangerous results.  I especially like the way Ditko draws the alien faces in this one.

But before the story, some links:
STATIC, MOCKER and MISSING MAN volumes available
New issue now available
Hulk/Torch team-up inches closer every day
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies

  1. I'm not sure is this is the right place to ask for informations 'cause this is my first post here.
    I'm searching for a short story Ditko did around the late 60s/early 70s.It's about a hunchback(named Coco) who made an automaton to reign as a king in some vaguely middle-age country.If someone can help me or tell me where i can find resources to find specific comics,i'd really appreciate.
