Unusual Tales - The Edge Of Fear

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

"The Edge Of Fear" is a 5-page story from Charlton's UNUSUAL TALES #10 [1958], a short science fiction drama about a father/son inventor team who experiment to tap into the power of the unused portion of the human mind.  After some preliminary success, they invite some of the top minds in the world for a secret demonstration that  goes awry.

Several strong images by Ditko in this one, I especially like the top of the last page.  Check out that tie, a Ditko trademark.
