Unusual Tales - The Man Who Changed Bodies

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

"The Man Who Changed Bodies" is a 5-page story from Charlton's THIS MAGAZINE IS HAUNTED #13 [1957]. Pretty standard morality play about a man who learns that people control their own fortunes after he finds a way to switch bodies with a millionaire. A lot of nice Ditko images, including the body transfer scene and the panel showing off the extravagant lifestyle that squanders away the ill-gotten wealth.

But before the story, some links:
Over two dozen publications in print
Back issues and subscriptions available
Close to complete Ditko DC library soon to be available in three matching hardcovers
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
