Eat flaming death, minicomputer mongrels!

Eat flaming death, minicomputer mongrels! That quote was made famous through the old comic book CPU Wars. The comic chronicled the battles between two companies: IPM (Impossible to Program Machines); HEC (Human Engineered Computers); and the people involved. It is now archived, in its entirety, on the web.

I'm sure this is brilliant on some level, but the art is hella-ugly :(.

Not as charming as Alec and Shanna from Radio Shack's Whiz Kids comic book!

Holy flaming cow! I actually have a copy of that "Whiz Kids" comic book somewhere in my collection! Ah, for the golden age when a TRS-80 was all you needed to save the world. Now you need a shiny laptop, a hot girl, and "guns, lots of guns". The 80's were simpler times in many ways...
