Electronics-Themed Comics
April and September 1954 Radio & Television News

Today has been a busy day, so a couple electronics-themed comics from issues of vintage Radio & Television News magazines help to relieve the stress a bit. I could never figure out why these comics were buried deep inside most issues at the ends of article continuations. These two were on pages 88 and 93. The top one is meant to demonstrate just how obsessed the public was with the relatively new television phenomenon - just look at what they chose to ignore on the display TV in order to get a peek at the inside workings of a television set. The other comic, while clever in its intent, would never pass editorial muster in today's world because of the great hazard it represents. Enjoy.
