Unusual Tales - Free

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

"Free" is a 3-page story first published in Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #35 [1957]. Brief little fantasy story about a man escaping jail but never quite getting free.  Some good artwork in this one, including one of the occasional uses of mechanical tones for the shading that Ditko did in the 1950s.

But before the story, some links:
Complete MISSING MAN book available
Ditko rarities and fan art and articles
Complete CREEPER hardcover available
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
