Comics with an Electronics Theme
December 1962 & May 1970 Popular Electronics

Here are a few more tech-themed comics from vintage editions (1962 and 1970) of Popular Electronics magazine. The first comic with the transistors and fuse is really clever, IMHO. It was one of the "Parts Talk" series. The other two are directed toward amateur radio operators, but you don't need to be one to appreciate the humor. There is a hyperlinked list at the bottom of the page of most of the other comics I've posted over the years. It's a shame that comics rarely appear in contemporary technical magazines - probably too afraid of offending someone.
