Number 1957: Night of the
Red Pink Snow
Really, folks, this is a screwy tale, even for Charlton, even for their line of post-Code mystery comics. What is advertised on the cover as a “dread secret” is really not, but a baffling explanation that literally comes out of the sky. You’ll see what I mean when you read it.
What is important about this story is the artwork, where Ditko did his usual excellent job. His drawing is a lot better than “Night of the Red Snow” deserves.
From Unusual Tales #9 (1957):
*Like most of my comics buys from the fifties, now long one.
