Electronics-Themed Comics
June 1952 Radio-Electronics

June 1952 Radio-Electronics

June 1952 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.

I really like the electronics themed comic that appeared on page 36 of the June 1952 issue of Radio-Electronics magazine. Like with this one, many of the ideas for the comics are provided by readers, and then are incorporated by artists such as Frank Beaven, a frequent contributor. Note in that comic the name of the repair shop is the first name of the guy who submitted it - a sort of hat-tip to the guy. As with many of the comics, I have taken the liberty of colorizing them in order to spice them up a bit. The page 78 comic represents the frustration (and annoyance) a lot of in-home electronics servicemen had to endure from customers who desperately want their help, but then wouldn't leave them alone to do their jobs - and then often tried to cheat them out of the pay they earned.
