Terminal Lance Solid #1
December 1, 2017
Kept you waiting, huh?
CBRN Chief Warrant Officer Quigley has taken the base hostage and is held up in the chemical weapons depot. He is threatening to unleash CS gas across the entire base! We have to stop him!
My favorite Metal Gear Solid game is probably the first one just because I find it to be the most iconic. Shadow Moses, cyborg ninjas, evil twins, government plots–the game has it all and doesn’t get bogged down into an esoteric slog like the second game. As well, the music from the PlayStation original is top notch (far better than the Gamecube remake from years later).
It goes without saying that I’m a huge Metal Gear Solid fan. It’s informed a lot of my work over the years; from the art of Yoji Shinkawa, to the weird (but awesome) writing of Hideo Kojima. So I figured, what better way to commemorate the 500th comic of Terminal Lance than with a 10 part Metal Gear Solid series for the holidays! This will run until the end of December and regular comics will resume in the new year. This isn’t the first time we’ve done a 10 part comic series, but it’s been a bit since the Revenge of the Dependapotamus.
On an unrelated note, I want to mention that we have an awesome new Christmas sweater and shirt on the official TL store. Click here to spread some Terminal Lance cheer for the holidays. Order by December 16th to receive before the holidays!
