Reading Room MYSTICAL TALES "Lair of the Thunder Lizard"

I don't usually run unrelated stories from the same anthology two days in a row...
...but this piece just begged to be unearthed for the first time in almost 60 years...
Scripted by Carl Wessler and rendered by Bernie Krigstein, this never-reprinted piece from Atlas' Mystical Tales #8 (1957) is a low-key character study enhanced by Krigstein's naturalistic art.
Bernie was already phasing out of comics and into mainstream commercial art (including book and magazine illustration).
This tale was one of his last stories before leaving the comics field altogether.
