Will Eisner—best known for his influential comic book series The Spirit—believed in the teaching power of comics. From 1951 to 1971 he produced PS Magazine for the U.S. Army, which aimed to teach American soldiers everything about weapons safety for vehicles, aircraft, firearms and electronics. Eisner illustrated these vital lessons in drawings, pinups, step-by-step guides and comic strips. This collection contains the best of Eisner’s 227 issues of PS and provides the missing link between his comic books and his later, more mature graphic novel style.
