Unusual Tales - Look Deep Into My Eyes

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

"Look Deep Into My Eyes" is a 5-page story from Charlton's MYSTERIES OF UNEXPLORED WORLDS #6 [1957].

A bit of a creepy little story about a man who is haunted by whispers that compel him to try his hand at hypnotism despite no talent for it.  Really strange and interesting story.

And just check out that art.  That opening is just beautiful, setting the mood nicely for what's to come, and the faces and body language are just top notch.  Plus, check out that recurring Ditko visual of the floating laughing mouths on page 2.
