"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.
Another of the more dramatically written Charlton stories of the era, with the story of a sentient river taking its revenge on those who would try to contain its power. Ditko captures the mood nicely, with that really dramatic moment of destruction in the splash panel and later in the story with the dam breaking. Very entertaining overall.
