Unusual Tales - The End Of Edward

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

"The End Of Edward" is a 5-page story from Charlton's TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #9 [1958]. In contrast to the Traveler's constant presence weaved into this story in this one he only appears in the two panels, almost as an afterthought, hardly fitting with the rest of the art. Anyway, this story features a stage performer who wants to work without his partner. The twist is pretty predictable. Overall not one of the better Ditko stories of the era.

But before the story, some links:
