PS Magazine was launched in 1951 and is still being published today. Although not strictly a comic, it was created by a true comic book great, Will Eisner.
Eisner had already found success with "The Spirit" newspaper insert when, during World War II, he was drafted into the Army. There he worked on publications, creating a hapless and incompetent character named Joe Dope.
With the end of hostilities, Eisner founded "American Visuals Corporation" to produce educational illustrations and cartoons. In 1951 he was hired by the Army to create a new instructional magazine modeled on the WWII "Army Motors", which he had worked on. The brief was to create a similar publication to promote preventive maintenance as a postscript ("PS") to existing channels, and for it be something that soldiers would want to read.
Over the years many characters have appeared including: Private Joe Dope and Private Fosgnoff. Two characters, Half-Mast and Connie Rodd, have appeared in every single issue!
Eisner continued as PS Magazine's artistic director for the first twenty years. Artists who have worked on the title include: Alfredo Alcala, Murphy Anderson, Joe Kubert, Andre LeBlanc, Scott Madsen, Malane Newman, Don Perlin, Mike Ploog and Dan Spiegle. What a roll-call!
