TGIF, and that means tech-themed comics from vintage electronics magazines if I happen to have any. You'll really appreciate the comic on page 96 of the 1965 issue of Popular Electronics. In a way, the drawing's concept was very prescient regarding the future of flexible, bendable circuits. A big part of the electronics world at the time centered around servicing all the newfangled circuits and test equipment for troubleshooting and aligning them. As is still true today, technology changed quickly and there was always a newer model television, radio, tape recorder, stereo system, video recorder, etc. Customer interactions and repair shop experiences provided plenty of amusing fodder for magazine articles and comics.
