Reading Room VENUS COMICS "Little Man Who Wasn't There!"

Let's wind up our week of Venus Comics back-up tales with...
...a story that would have qualified as "metafictional"...if the word had existed in 1951!
Neither the writer nor artist for this never-reprinted story from Atlas' Venus Comics #14 (1951) are known to us (or any credible source like GCD).
Pity, since it's a clever little tale...though it would've benefited from being given a couple of additional pages to flesh out why the "creator" decided to suddenly alter the character's personality and actions so radically.
(Perhaps the "creator" in the last panel was, himself, being manipulated by a creator who was going insane...)
