Terminal Lance “Revenge of the Dependapotamus” Pg 4
December 10, 2013
We finally get a glimpse of the great Vagabba the Slut in all of her glory!
I know some people lack patience around here, the same things happened when I did the “Necropocalypse.” Half the audience really loved it and the other half were posting asinine remarks like, “this is gay ur not funny anymore go back to comic strips ur a fag
i sucked a dick once in college but I’m not gay i swear i love vagina why don’t u believe me?” and so forth. Much like the Necropocalypse, this is a 10 part series and it’ll be over when it’s over. If you’re not a Star Wars fan, then that sucks for you, since 99% of the world has seen and loves Star Wars. My favorite one is, “the comics were funnier when u were still active duty and one time i gave a hand job to my buddy that was passed out from drinking it wasn’t gay but i kind of liked it but i love pussy” which would be remotely true except for the fact that every comic after strip #34 is post-active duty.
The criticism over the last page was interesting. It was the Chaplain’s 4th appearance in Terminal Lance and certainly not the first appearance of a penis (or even half of one), but people found it “offensive.” In fact, someone even asked me to take it down from the Facebook page.
Yes, I’m totally going to take down a link to my own website because it offends you.
As Terminal Lance gets bigger it really does get more difficult to please everyone. My core audience of Marine Corps infantry that made Terminal Lance what it is is but a small minority of the masses that read this now. I certainly love everyone, regardless of what you do or who you are, but Terminal Lance hasn’t changed over the last 3 years, and I really don’t want it to.
It’s a simple fact: I can’t please everyone.
So if I can only please one group of people, it will be the Marines I started with, and I’ll be happy.
Terminal Lance has had an interesting journey over the last few years. It’s as much about Abe and Garcia as it is about the fans that keep it alive and me as the creator. It’s a lot of work, but it’s what I do, and I love doing it. You guys have had a glimpse into my life over the last three and a half years that has had good times and bad times. Terminal Lance has more of a personal connection to people because they know me, Max, the guy who writes and draws all of this stuff. For those of you that have been with me for the long haul, I applaud and love you. For those of you that are new, stick around and go back, read the older comics and try to catch on.
I can’t please everyone, but if you’ve only read one comic and you didn’t like it, I have no interest in pleasing you at all.
