I've worked on-and-off in the comics industry since 1982...
...and I've never experienced a situation like this guy goes through!
(I've never seen anyone wear a suit jacket at their desk, either. But that's another story...)
This reflective story ACG's Adventures into the Unknown #9 (1950) was probably written by editor Richard Hughes and was illustrated by pulp artist Robert S Pious, who worked on-and-off in comics from 1940 to 1955 before moving into book publishing and later, fine arts.
