Terminal Lance Solid #8

January 2, 2018

I have to admit, I always wanted to be experimented on and turned into a cyborg ninja. I mean, who doesn’t? At the very least, I was hoping to be part of some kind of super soldier Marine program like Captain America. I was sadly disappointed to find out when I enlisted that secret government black projects that transformed regular people into hardcore badasses wasn’t particularly commonplace, despite what you see in movies and video games.

Uncle Sam, if you’re reading this, I will still totally volunteer to be turned into a cyborg ninja or something. Just hit me up.

As for Garcia, I have to agree that his name does sound better than Deepthroat. If you’re confused by any of this, I suggest catching up on both Metal Gear Solid and the Terminal Lance graphic novel “The White Donkey” for context. We’re nearing the end of this MGS-inspired ripped-off adventure, and I’m hoping to get things back to normal around here by the end of the week. Look forward to the conclusion of Terminal Lance Solid soon!



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!



Terminal Lance “Things Are Heating Up II”

September 5, 2017

I’ll admit, I stole this joke from my old CBRN officer, but in reality it’s hardly a joke at all.

The new Cold War just got a lot hotter over the long weekend, as people stumbled back into work today to find that North Korea has been cooking up quite a shit storm by successfully testing a hydrogen bomb. Needless to say, I’m sure a lot of active duty and IRR Marines have been tossing and turning at night wondering if this thing is about to kick off.

I’ll admit, it’s refreshing to have someone outside of the middle east for once trying to kill us. However, engaging in a modern war with nuclear options on the table isn’t something that rests easy on anyone’s shoulders, and we should all be hopeful that the rhetoric dies down sooner than later.

Regardless, I’m sure a lot of Marines are counting the days left on their contracts with a sweat on their brow.

If you have any other questions about the technique illustrated in this comic, just form a school circle around the duck and he’ll explain in further detail.
