Gavin's Stupid Mule-Steve Ditko-1957

Some nice quirky character art from Steve "Rebel" Ditko on this one but the last page oddly leaves out completely what is seemingly the single most important image of the story, one which was already telegraphed in the splash panel. I don't understand the reasoning behind that at all.

One possibility that occurs to me is that what were published as the last page were an awkward abridgment. Every page after the first is laid-out as three rows each of two panels, so a pair of scissors and some paste might have turned a six-page story into a five-page story.
