Electronics-Themed Comics
January 1948 Radio-Craft

January 1948 Radio-Craft

January 1948 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Illustrating (literally) once again the fascination the public had with television during its heyday from the late 1940s to the 1960s, this set of electronics-themed comics from a 1948 issue of Radio-Craft magazine depict the humorous situations both real and imagined for the technology. Artist Frank Beaven, a frequent contributor to the publication, took suggestions by reads and turned them into comics. The concept of multi-sensory TV experiences were common, including not just sight and sound, but also smell and tactile sensations. 3-D projection and large screens were also envisioned in the comics. The page 124 comic is my favorite as it exhibits a tried and true sales technique for securing business from guys. Interestingly, note that the comic on page 86 is credited to someone from Tel-Aviv, Palestine. A few months after this issue hit the new stands, Israel established its independence and established itself as a sovereign nation for the first time in two millennia. After that, Mr. Strudler's address was Tel-Aviv, Israel.
