Unusual Tales - Failure

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

"Failure" is a 5-page story from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #36 [1958]. An entertaining little science fiction parable about scientist Karl Phalen, who has been working on a device to see the future with the help of three wealthy backers, and the choice he has to make on the cusp of success. A few really good images by Ditko, especially in the glimpse of the near future.

But before the story, some links:
Next new release A DITKO #16 coming soon

Back issues and subscriptions available
Ditko's 1980s INDIANA JONES stories in print from Dark Horse
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
