'Terminal Lance' creator talks about the Marine Corps and the future of his comic
The creator of the military counter-culture comic strip "Terminal Lance"—Max Uriarte—is the guest for this week's podcast.
Max leads a busy life these days. He just published his much anticipated graphic novel "The White Donkey," he's working on building an animation studio, and he continues to publish his wildly popular comic strip.
This episode delves into the origins of the Terminal Lance universe, Max's film aspirations, and his reasons for getting serious in the "White Donkey."
As usual, the show is hosted by:
- Logan Nye: Army veteran and WATM Associate Editor
- Blake Stilwell: Air Force veteran and WATM Managing Editor
- Orvelin Valle (AKA O.V.): Navy veteran and WATM Social Media Editor
