Early Ditko Find

While those of us stuck with American television won't be enjoying BBC4's Steve Ditko special tomorrow night, David Zuzelo's Tomb It May Concern blog has performed the important service of posting what may be Steve Ditko's earliest horror comic story, "Stretching Things."
I have no proof other than what I can see, but I personally suspect that the unsigned artwork (already distinctly Ditko) had a little help from a moonlighting Jack Davis on pages 3 and 4 -- see what you think.
Be sure to read the accompanying comments for input from Yours Truly, and a concise history of the story's initial 1954 appearance in print.
