Unusual Tales - The Strange Silence

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

"The Strange Silence" is a 4-page story from St. John's DO YOU BELIEVE IN NIGHTMARES #1 [1957]. A fairly low-key crime drama morality play, a few good Ditko panels you might be able to make out through the horrid printing.

One of five Ditko stories in this unusual book, his only work published by St. John.  Here are the other four:
"The Somnambulist"
"You Can Make Me Fly"
"The Man Who Crashed Into Another Era"

And the cover is among those posted here

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