Unusual Tales - The Great Escape

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

"The Great Escape" is a 5-page story from Charlton's SPACE ADVENTURES #27 [1959], wherein a man finds a small meteorite and it tells him the story of the destruction of the planet Bala and the escape plan of the Balarites. All this leads to him making a questionable decision. Some striking visuals on the flashback to doomed Bala by Ditko.

But before the story, some links:
Classic MOCKER graphic novel available
Back issues and subscriptions available
Ditko's Legion of Super-Heroes stories in DC's DITKO OMNIBUS v2
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
