For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Forward" I decided to do a comic for the first time. It spun out of the natural enough "Forward... MARCH!!" that sprung into my head when I saw the topic. That lead to memories of USMC boot camp many years ago and the realization that Marine Corps D.I.'s seem during the first few weeks to be like cartoon characters themselves... insane, nightmare-inducing cartoon characters. They are loud, in your face, monstrous beings capable of exploding in your general direction because you're unable to do things that you have not yet been taught... it takes a few weeks to see them as being multi-dimensional beings who really are molding you. This modest 3-page comic is a nod to those terrifying first few weeks.
Thanks for checking it out, and check back in later.
