Will Eisner was already famous for his work on The Spirit when he was drafted for duty during World War II. While in the service, Eisner put his artistic talents to work in army publications, creating a character named Joe Dope. After the war, the army wanted to design a publication dedicated to preventive maintenance that soldiers would actually want to read, and turned to Eisner’s young company, American Visuals Corporation. Eisner was the artistic director for PS Magazine [a.k.a. “Preventive Maintenance Monthly”] from its inception in 1951 through 1972.”
