Reading Room FUTURE WORLD COMICS "What in the Future World"

It's always fun to see what people of the past (1946) predicted for the future (our present)...
...what they got right, what they got wrong, and what they sorta got right!
Both the writer and the artist of this never-reprinted feature from the short-lived George W. Dougherty Publishing's Future World Comics #2 (1946) got about half the predictions right like printed circuits and carbon monoxide detectors, but also came up with weirdies like plastic clotheslines and a fountain pen with ink pellets you just add water to for instant ink!
Ah, well...
