Will Eisner on the Care of Your M-16

Will Eisner's M16 US Army Rifle Maintenance Booklet, 1968

The title of the comic book is The M16A1 Rifle: Operation and Preventive Maintenance. It’s been posted by Ethan Persoff as part of his Comics With Problems series. What makes this fascinating is not just the fact that a copy of the comic book was included with each rifle that went to a U.S. soldier in Vietnam back in 1968. It’s not just the wacky levels of innuendo that permeate this thing. It’s the fact that Will Eisner and Eisner Studios provided the artwork.
