Unusual Tales - The Merciless Mesa

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

"The Merciless Mesa" is a 5-page story first published in Charlton's ROCKY LANE'S BLACK JACK #26 [1959]. A nice little story about an easterner from Vermont heading out to the wild west and learning some hard lessons about life in the frontier, with some help from Black Jack.  Unusual for Ditko's stories from this series, Black Jack's owner Rocky Lane actually appears in the story.

But before the story, some links:
ACT 8 out soon
#84 now available, with samples of as-yet unpublished Ditko Hulk/Torch team-up pencils
Aforementioned Hulk/Torch story coming soon
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
