The U.S. Army published a comic book manual titled “Preventative Maintenance Monthly”, an extremely well done Army Manual disguised as a comic book. It’s written by men, for men, can you tell?

Technical information in comic book form – The wave of the future?
I really like this Vietnam-era Armt Manual on caring for your M16-1A. The title is “treat your rifle like a lady”, and the pages on“ How to strip your baby!” are quite funny!
But the point is that people are visual critters, and illustrated manuals are a great idea, especially for highly technical information . . .
