Unusual Tales - The Scar

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

"The Scar" is a 5-page story from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #34 [1957]. The story is a sort of Poe-inspired guilty conscience story, set in the business world, and there are a lot of clever visuals by Ditko to make it stand out, especially the splash panel and the one I've highlighted to the right.

And the name of the lead character is interesting, to say the least.

But before the story, some links:
Back issues and subscriptions available
CREEPER hardcover available from DC
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
