Here are a few more electronics-themed
comics from magazines of the days of yore. Radio-Craft readers submitted
ideas for funnies and then artist Frank Beaven would draw the comics based on their
ideas. Some months had no comics, and others had half a dozen or more. This June
1945 issue had three. There is also one from the
May 1946 Radio News. You website site visitors not familiar
vacuum tube construction might need to know that the jailhouse bars in "Control
Grid" comic are an allusion to the wire mesh type element in tubes that modulated
electron flow from the cathode to the anode. I once again colorized the comics to
make them more attractive. Enjoy.
