Unusual Tales - The Phantom Spring


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

"The Phantom Spring" is a 5-page story from Charlton's ROCKY LANE'S BLACK JACK #26 [1959], another of just over two dozen western stories that Ditko illustrated.  In this story, the famed ebony horse helps out an old prospector.  Some decent art in here, always good to see a few silent panels, and the big action sequence on the last page is fun.

But before the story, some links:
Over two dozen publications in print
Back issues and subscriptions available
Most of Ditko's 1980s THUNDER AGENTS tales in DC's ARCHIVES v7
Download public domain comics, likely including the one this story is from
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
