The White DonkeyGraphic Novel - 2016
A graphic novel of war and its aftermath.
A powerful, compulsively page-turning, vivid, and moving tribute to the experience of war and PTSD, The White Donkey tells the story of Abe, a young Marine recruit who experiences the ugly, pedestrian, and often meaningless side of military service in rural Iraq. He enlists in hopes of finding that missing something in his life but comes to find out that it's not quite what he expected. Abe gets more than he bargained for when his journey takes him to the middle east in war-torn Iraq.
This is a story about a Marine, written and illustrated by a Marine, and is the first graphic novel about the war in Iraq from a veteran. The White Donkey explores the experience of being a Marine, as well as the challenges that veterans face upon their return home, and its raw power will leave you in awe.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Terminal Lance: The White Donkey is a stunning graphic novel exploring both a soldier's motivations for joining a volunteer war (Iraq) and the sacrifices that decision entails. Both humorous and horrifying, Maximilian Uriarte's novel is "American Sniper" about an average joe melded with great visuals and creative use of panels and pages. Expect to be moved.
