BlogPost 24 – “PS Magazine” Characters and Animation

Interest in the presence (or absence) of animated film involving “PS Magazine” characters is addressed in this twenty-fourth BlogPost in our ongoing, year-long salute to the U.S. Army’s acclaimed sequential art success during its Sixtieth Anniversary Year.

Joe and Fitz discuss Will Eisner’s reluctance and doubts regarding the first such film venture, involving a motivational short for a Force-wide “readiness” campaign in the early 1960s.

The image below shows a frame from a sixty-second, black-and-white, 16-mm, television spot promoting “PS” that was part of a series produced in the late 1960s. The entire spot is available on this BlogPost.
