It's said that artists see things not as they are, but as they should be..
...a concept Cedric Chalmers indavertantly discovers in this never-reprinted story from Atlas' Mystical Tales #1 (1956)!
Despite its' title, the short-lived Mystical Tales was actually a sci-fi/science-fantasy anthology.
To this day, almost none of the tales have been reprinted, despite being rendered by a number of well-known artists like Joe Orlando (who did this story), Bob Powell, Reed Crandall, Bill Everett, and Bernie Krigstein!
The writers for almost all of the stories, however, are unknown.
