Unusual Tales - The Secret Room

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

"The Secret Room" is a 5-page story from Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #6 [1957]. A quick little story about John and Mary Miller, and elderly couple who buy a rotting old house to spend their last years in, and as you often see in these stories find so much more than they expect. Nothing too special, but a couple of nice Ditkoisms in their early form.

But before the story, some links:
New work published on a regular basis
Find out about the fanzine DITKOMANIA
Regular reviews of the new Ditko stuff and more
Lots of old work coming back into print for the first time in decades
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
