Unusual Tales - The Last One

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

"The Last One" is a 6-page story from Charlton's THIS MAGAZINE IS HAUNTED #12 [1957].

A cute little story about the last of the centaurs emerging after thousands of years sealed in a cave, determined to get revenge on humanity for the strange malady that eliminated his species.

Very attractive art by Ditko on this one, from the storm on the first page to the despair and rage of the centaur as he reflects on the fate of his people.
