Will Eisner: Best of Preventive Maintenance



Will Eisner (1917-2005) best known for his influential comic book series The Spirit and his groundbreaking graphic novel A Contract with God, believed in the teaching power of comics, and from 1951-1971 he produced PS Magazine for the U.S. Army. This Preventative Maintenance Monthly, called PS because it was a post-script to the standard technical manuals, was aimed at teaching American soldiers about weapons saftey and proper maintenance of vehicles, aircraft, and electronics. Eisner illustrated these vital lessons with spot art, pun-ups, step by step guides, and comic strips!
