Comics with an Electronics Theme
August 1973 Popular Electronics

August 1973 Popular Electronics

August 1973 Popular Electronics Cover - RF CafeTable of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Here is another tech-themed comic from a 1973 issue of Popular Electronics magazine. There are usually two or more per edition, but not this time. It took looking a second time to figure out what the guy in the comic was referring to - pretty funny after I "got it." There is a hyperlinked list at the bottom of the page for the hundreds of comics I've posted over the years. It's a shame that comics rarely appear in contemporary technical magazines.
