These electronics / technology themed comics from vintage hobby and trade magazines were not originally colorized since color printing was typically reserved for front and rear covers and maybe monotone color for higher priced advertisements. Even shades of gray were rare, so varying line widths and tiny dotted fill areas were used to give depth to an image. Similar techniques are still used today in newspaper weekday comics that are not colorized. Accordingly, the color in these comics was added by yours truly in order to make them more appealing. Feel free to use them in your presentations and office cubicles, but please include an attribute to RFCafe.com. BTW, the cow in the comic is using a Handy-Talkie, not a cellphone. Note the source of the upsetting commercial in the other comic is a radio, not even a TV. Finally, the germanium vs. germanium gag was popular back in the early days of semiconductors.
