Electronics-Themed Comics
March 1946 Radio-Craft

These "Radio Term Illustrated" and "Technical Term Illustrated" electronics-themed comics are amongst the best I can remember seeing. They appeared in two 1946 issues of Radio-Craft magazine. For the uninitiated, WAVES is an acronym for Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. They were a World War II phenomenon established on July 30, 1942, half a year after the Pearl Harbor attack. Their Navy Reserve status granted both commissioned officers and enlisted women official service duty status for the duration of the war and entitled them to the privileges (and in some case dangers) that came with it. As with women occupying manufacturing and even airplane ferrying jobs previous dominated by men, WAVES freed up men to go fight the war. The artist, Frank Beaven (FB), solicited suggestions from readers and then turned them into a sort of double entendre form of comics. If you look at the long list below of other comics, you will find many other examples of clever work from Mr. Beaven.
