PS It's the Art of Diving

I'm in the middle of a busy couple of weeks on the Ryder Cup but I don't want to neglect the blog completely so here's a quickie for you.

PS, The Preventive Maintenance Monthly was published by American Visuals Corporation for the US Army and was so named because it was a postscript to their normal technical manuals. The founder of AVC and the magazine's artistic director was comics legend Will Eisner, best known for The Spirit newspaper strip as well as graphic novels such as A Contract with God and Other Tenement Stories, The Building, Dropsie Avenue and To the Heart of the Storm. The magazine's sexy cover star, Connie Radd, had previously appeared (as Sergeant Connie Radd) in Army Motors which Eisner had drawn while serving in the US Army during World War II.
