Unusual Tales - The Hammer Of Thor

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

From Charlton's OUT OF THIS WORLD #11 [1959] comes the 5-page story "The Hammer Of Thor", though you may be familiar with it from its reprinting in THANE OF BAGARTH #24 [1985].

For my own comments on the story, I'll refer you to this post.  More interesting as an historical curiosity than for its own merits, but there is some very nice illustration by Ditko in his more economical style.
