Unusual Tales - Imagination

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

"Imagination" is a 5-page story from Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #8 [1958]. A very odd little story about a young boy and his imaginative view of the world, with a lot of room for some memorable Ditko visuals.  Some great birds make this a highlight of Ditko's 1950s work.

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

As this story appears in the Snyder/Ditko published TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #19 [2016], I'm only including the first page below.
