Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Electronics World, published May 1959 - December 1971. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

Kick back at the end of work today and enjoy this triad of electronics-themed comics from vintage Radio & Television News and Electronics World magazines. Other than an occasional contest to create a caption for a comic drawing, when is the last time you saw a comic in a technical magazine? Where has the humor gone? Is everyone so afraid of offending someone that comics have been banned by lawsuit-fearful editors? You have my invitation to create a good-humored cartoon about me or RF Cafe anytime you wish, and I promise not to sue you. I'll even post it here on the website if you like.

BTW, these comics make good fodder for opening your technical presentations.
