Unusual Tales - The Mirror

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

"The Mirror" is a 5-page story from Charlton's UNUSUAL TALES #15 [1959], about a greedy landlord who has a strange encounter when he takes a mirror from a fortune teller tenant to cover an increase in the rent.  Kind of a creepy little ending on this one, and Ditko would do better with mirror motif stories in other parts of his career.

But before the story, some links:
