Description

    Win Mortimer (attributed) - Trapped! #nn Cover Original Art (Harvey, 1951). One of the most notorious anti-drug "educational" comics ever produced is the now-hilarious Trapped!, in which a bright high school student becomes a hopeless junkie after only a few puffs off a marijuana "reefer." It's a camp classic, the comic book equivalent to the "Reefer Madness" movie of the 1930s. This cover art also serves as the splash page to the story, with trouble waiting for our hero on the very next page. It doesn't take long to hit rock bottom, as our hapless hero winds up behind bars before long. Don't worry, though -- he'll straighten up now! If only important social problems like drug abuse could really be solved so easily! The art measures approximately 15.25" x 22.5", and is in Very Good condition. Remember, kids: Just Say No!
