Unusual Tales - He Shall Have Vengeance

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

"He Shall Have Vengeance" is a 5-page story first published in Charlton's THIS MAGAZINE IS HAUNTED #13 [1957].  Again a pretty predictable ending, but some really good bits by Ditko, especially in the faces showing desperation and fear, two Ditko specialties.  And of course lots of good interstitial panels featuring the narrator Dr. Haunt.

But before the story, some links:
160 page book of classic 1970s Charlton available
Published bi-monthly, back issues available
Two Ditko Omnibus volumes from DC coming out this year
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies
