Interesting look at when computers appeared in comics.

"After much anguished hand-wringing, I narrowed down the finalists for the "First Appearance of a Real Computer in a Comic Book" to three possibilities, two runner-ups, and a lovely Batman comic that I had to include because of the device's outlandish user interface. So six comics in all.""

@sohkamyung This is great! From what I remember when I was reading Batman comic books in the mid-70s, some of the computers shown still looked very much like ENIAC.

The idea that a powerful computer will fill a giant room was visually appealing for comic book creators and they were clinging to it all the way to the advent of the home computer era.
