Unusual Tales - Fatal Rendezvous

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

"Fatal Rendezvous" is a 5-page story first published in Charlton's BLACK FURY #16 [1958]. It's a well drawn story about a man named Durkin who's out in the wild in the middle of a drought and his encounter with our equine hero. A nicely unusual story.  I especially like the emphasis on the sun to show the heat of the story and the buffalo stampede on page four.

But before the story, some links:
ACT 8 out soon
Published bi-monthly
Lots of available reprints of material from this era
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
