PS: the Preventive Maintenance Monthly V1 N1

To celebrate Memorial Day, here's a landmark military magazine...
...produced by the legendary Will Eisner and his studio to promote good maintenance of vehicles in an easy-to-read format including text articles with spot illustrations and even comic strips.

It quickly expanded its' coverage to include weapons, radios, and literally everything else military personnel utilized.
And, by the third issue, it began utilizing the military's single greatest weapon...women!
Eisner's studio handled the magazine until 1971, turning it over to Murphy Anderson's Visual Concepts studio, who passed it on to Joe Kubert in 2001.
Kubert's studio still produces the magazine, often utilizing students from his comic art school.
Until next time...
