Unusual Tales - Cure-All

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

"Cure-All" is a 6-page story from Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #7 [1958], about a small town in Holland where a doctor introduces an amazing medical robot, but among the miracle cures a local doctor notices some mysterious deaths. Odd story, especially the ending as you'll see.  A few really good Ditko images, especially the graveyard scene and the images of the characters reflected in the robot on page 4.

But before the story, some links:
