Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Here is a batch of electronics-themed comics that appeared in the January 1945 edition of Radio News magazine. The editors must have been frisky and into the holiday spirit(s) when choosing comics that month. You'll see what I mean. Marvin Townsend, one of the artists, was a frequent contributor to electronics magazines. As with Townsend and those drawn by Frank Beaven and others, you can usually tell who drew the comic by the character forms. There is a huge list of other comics at the bottom of the page.
