Terminal Lance: The White Donkey

No spoilers in the first post, but no guarantees for any replies if you haven’t read the book yet.

So, Maximilian Uriarte, a former US Marine who writes and draws the webcomic Terminal Lance, just published a graphic novel based on his experiences in Iraq, called “Terminal Lance: The White Donkey”.

He ran a Kickstarter campaign a few years back to fund the production of the book, and I have to say, having received my copy yesterday, it was well worth waiting for. If you didn’t get it from Kickstarter, it goes on sale on Amazon tomorrow, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in military fiction or the Marines.

If you are a fan of his webcomic, I should warn you this book is not a comedy like the Terminal Lance is, it’s a serious and sometimes emotional character study about a Marine’s first combat deployment.
