Unusual Tales - Tomorrow's Punishment

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

"Tomorrow's Punishment" is a 5-page story first published in Charlton's TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #6 [1957]. A nice little tale of a magic mirror used in the service of crime told by the Traveler, I especially like the hint the Traveler gives in the beginning of a larger story about the origin of the mirror.  Also a few nice visual bits in the curio shop and the texture of the visions in the mirror.

This story appears in TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #32 [2020] from SD Publishing, so only the first page is previewed below.
But before the story, some links:
A DITKO #15 coming soon
#86 now available
DITKO OMNIBUS v2 coming soon from DC
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
