RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 657596031 LA English T1 PS magazine : the best of the Preventive maintenance monthly A1 Eisner, Will., Campbell, Eddie,, PB Abrams ComicArts PP New York YR 2011 SN 9780810997486 0810997487 AB "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 to 1971 he produced PS magazine for the U.S. Army. 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.
