It only gets stranger from here, gents. I mentioned this before, but this is a 10 part series. If you’re dying for some good old-fashioned 3-panel humor, be sure to check out Terminal Lance in the Marine Corps Times newspaper, where new regular strips are currently running every week.
It’s a busy time in the world of Terminal Lance, there’s a lot of great stuff coming down the pipes; but it all takes time and I am but one man. The extra money from the Kickstarter campaign is being put into new projects, some of which you already know about, but others I haven’t announced yet. I’m trying my hardest to focus strictly on The White Donkey, but my ambition sometimes gets the better of me as I’m constantly thinking of new projects to put resources into.
If this series wasn’t enough proof, I feel like it should be apparent that I’m a huge nerd. There’s a weird dichotomy in the world of nerds though; many are neckbeard virgins that never leave their mom’s basement while others maintain a regular life and have the capacity to get laid when they need to, keeping their Star Wars and Lord of the Rings obsessions under the surface. I prefer to think of myself as the latter, as I maintain a decent physique and am not disgusting or socially inept. I play video games, love Star Wars and the like, but I also am familiar with vaginas. Believe it or not, those two things are not mutually exclusive.
Star Wars made an impression on me very young. I was 11 when the Star Wars trilogy was re-released in 1997 under the moniker of “Special Edition,” with added shitty effects and some visual clean-up. Needless to say, I fell in love instantly. The scene where SgtMaj Yoda steals LCpl Skywalker’s tray-rat sausage was probably an inspiration for me to join the Marine Corps. As a child, Return of the Jedi was always my favorite because of the Jabba the Hut sequence and the space battle over the forest moon of Endor. I would actually say that Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Jurassic Park are probably the 3 most influential films of my life. All three of which led me to want to become a filmmaker, which I am still pursuing to this day (hence the animation degree).
I don’t really know where I’m going with this. Just know that Terminal Lance is not the last thing up my sleeve, but it will always be important to me.
Here’s some character sketches from The White Donkey!
