This is the third BlogPost in a four-part subset focusing on the masterful awareness displayed by PS Magazine in reflecting the powerful and ever-present intrusion of weather in military endeavors. It also is the fifteenth in our ongoing salute during this Sixtieth Anniversary Year of the U.S. Army's internationally acclaimed monthly publication. We feature a significant sample from the pen of Murphy Anderson. Murphy is an icon in the world of comics, and was a stalwart presence on the PS scene—from the 1960s, through the 1971 end of the Will Eisner era at PS, as part of the 24-month contract of the "Eisner Alumni Group," and then in his own right as the PS contract artist fromPS 252 (November 1973) until PS 368 (July 1983).
In the cause of accuracy, we must mention the 1978 hiccup in which Zeke Zekely underbid Murphy and then relinquished the contract after producing six issues. Murphy stepped back into harness.
Also in the realm of two-color, interior displays, here are two from the current PS art and production contractor, Joe Kubert, who marked his tenth anniversary with the magazine this past February. The one shown above is from PS 624 (November 2004). The one below is from PS 645 (August 2006).
The PS 100 (March 1961) Continuity by Will Eisner, below, is sprinkled with Korean clues.
