The Army had found some acceptance and success during the Second World War with the instructional publication Army Motors, for which Corporal Will Eisner, an established comic book writer-artist-editor, had been enlisted to draw such characters as the Beetle Bailey-like Private Joe Dope, the Lauren Bacall look-alike and "by the book" Corporal Connie Rodd, and Master Sergeant Half-Mast McCanick. Eisner left the Army as Chief Warrant Officer to found American Visuals Corporation, a contract graphics company. In response to a sudden need for maintenance instruction at the start of the Korean War, the Army contracted American Visuals Corporation to produce instructional material similar to Eisner's work on Army Motors for the Army Ordnance Corps' new publication, PS, The Preventive Maintenance Monthly, which replaced Army Motors in 1951.
