Comics with an Electronics Theme
Popular Electronics and Radio & Television News

Unashamedly I offer up these vintage yet timeless electronics-themed comics for your enjoyment. I freely admit to reaching for the comics page(s) of the newspaper to read the latest antics of Beetle Bailey, Dilbert, Hagar the Horrible, Garfield, Dennis the Menace, Peanuts, Blondie, and many others. As if that was not bad enough in some people's opinion, what would really keep me from getting invited to any more high class dinner parties* if the word got out is the fact that I actually try to spot the 6 differences in Bob Weber, Jr.'s drawings. Melanie and I also like to work the crossword puzzles together; supposedly that helps keep ageing gray matter from undergoing atrophy.
