Electronics-Themed Comics
December 1955 Radio-Electronics

December 1955 Radio-Electronics

December 1955 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

We hit the electronics-themed comics mother lode with the December 1955 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Maybe it was considered a Christmas present for the readers (those like me who appreciate such features). Eight; count 'em; eight. Some months have none at all. I was so appreciative that I went to the trouble to add color (all were originally B&W). Even nearly seven decades hence, you can still appreciate the humor as you remember that in the days vacuum tube equipment there was a lot of self-service and in-home service being done, causing plenty of comical (to those not affected) scenarios to ensue.
