This Preventive Maintenance Monthly, called PS because it was a postscript to the standard technical manuals, was aimed at teaching American soldiers about weapons safety and proper maintenance of vehicles, aircraft, and electronics. Eisner illustrated these vital lessons with spot art, pinups, step-by-step guides, and comic strips. This collection, the best of Eisner's 227 issues of PS, explores this relatively unknown body of work--the missing link between his comic books and his later, mature graphic novels."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
