Get This Monkey Off My Back "The Monkey" EC Comics Joe Orlando

The EC Shock SuspenStories Cover above from 1954 was by Al Feldstein.
Click and double click if necessary on all these pictures to enlarge them. The EC story below by Joe Orlando made a great impression on me when I was about 14 years old. After reading and looking at this I never had any intention of using heroin. You might say this was and is a great public service announcement to young people to avoid such behavoir. Bill Burroughs, Jr. told me he ruined his life trying to be like his father William Burroughs, Sr. After reading this I wanted never to have a monkey on my back.
