Electronics-Themed Comics
December 1947 & February 1954 Radio News

December 1947 Radio News
December 1947 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]  These articles are scanned and OCRed from old editions of the Radio & Television News magazine. Here is a list of the Radio & Television News articles I have already posted. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

The December 1947 issue of Radio News and the February 1954 issue of Radio & Television News published these electronics-themed comics. Humor evolves over time, which is apparent when you look over these and many of the other comics from these vintage electronics magazines. The AVC comic is the best, IMHO. For those of you not around in the olden days of vacuum tubes, tapping on a tube would often make it work properly again, either because of a dirty contact in the socket or crud that had accumulated on the screen grid. I give this batch a score of about 7 out of 10, but you might think otherwise. There is a growing list of other comics at the bottom of the page. Enjoy.

February 1954 Radio & TV News
Febuary 1954 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.
