Comics with a Technology Theme
May 1972 and July 1972 Popular Electronics

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes - RF CafeI own the complete Calvin and Hobbes set. Calvin's Spaceman Spiff and Tracer Bullet alter egos are the greatest!

Here are a couple more tech-themed comics from vintage Popular Electronics magazines. Only one comic appeared in each of the May 1972 and July 1972 issues, so I combined them onto a single page. What's that guy in the May comic in the background doing? Anyone remember those pieces of furniture that were once a staple of engineering offices? The July comic reminds me of a scenario that might have appeared in one of the old Calvin and Hobbes comic strips that graced our newspapers up through the end of 1995. Calvin's father, in case you didn't know, was a patent attorney.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer.
