PS MagazineBob Andelman let's us know that The Virginia Commonwealth University has uploaded a huge archive of over 140 issues of Will Eisner's PS Magazine. This is a huge resource of rarely-seen Eisner material featuring 'Joe Dope' and 'Connie Rod', showcasing Eisner's practical foray into educational comics for US troops:

VCU Libraries is honored to present these rare examples of the incomparable art work of the late Will Eisner. In an effort to encourage soldiers to keep better care of their equipment, the US Army hired Eisner's American Visuals Corporation to do a digest-sized publication focusing on preventive maintenance. Each issue consisted of a color comic book style cover; eight pages of four color comic continuity story in the middle; and a wealth of technical, safety, and policy information printed in two color. Eisner drew and was artistic editor for PS Magazine from its inception in 1951 until 1972. Presented here are complete scans for 145 regular issues, 3 special issues, and 14 index issues.
