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.
