Terminal Lance #277 “Late Nights”
July 12, 2013
You know how I talked about, before, the fact that officers always have really hot wives? Well, unfortunately that’s not usually true with the enlisted folk. Okay, it’s not always this bad, or ever, really. But still, it makes you wonder why some Staff NCO’s and the like would rather be around a bunch of 20 year old Lance Corporals all night instead of just going home. Just fucking go home.
Okay, I don’t really have much of a point here, I just really wanted to do this ridiculous strip. What’s funny about it is that there’s really no exposition whatsoever here; but every single Marine here knows exactly what this comic is about. Probably without even reading the second panel, you knew that this was “field day” in the barracks. I think it’s interesting that, as Marines, we’re able to instantly identify cultural markers without even so much as a background drawn in the panel.
A random observation, sure, but true nonetheless. This strip was actually inspired by a comment left on the Facebook fan page regarding this image:
Yes, this is happening.
Revenge of the Dependapotamus is going to be a new 10-page mini comic much like the Necropocalypse; but obviously instead of zombies we’re dealing with Star Wars. I know, super original right? But you’d be surprised at how incredibly perfect the setting is for making Marine Corps jokes. I’ll be revealing how you can get your hands on this epic in the very near future.
In the meantime, have a good weekend and wear a condom.
Not necessarily for sex, just put one on.
You never know.
