Unusual Tales - There It Is Again

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

"There It Is Again" is a 5-page story from Charlton's STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES #35 [1957]. An interesting variation on the old Frankenstein story, with a scientist creating an artificial life-form and being disappointed with the results, and then hounded by his creation. Sort of.  Couple of nice bits where Ditko gets to show off his mastery of the creepy in some varied settings.

But before the story, some links:
