Actually, the US Military did produce at least one user guide in comic strip
form: the manual for the Liberator pistol. It was a one-page comic strip
showing how to load and use the pistol. The pistol was meant to be dropped
behind enemy lines to resistance fighters during WWII, so the instructions
had to be simple and non-language dependent. (just the gun and history, not the
instructions, sorry)
