Most of my adjectives for this book start with H: haunting, harrowing, heartbreaking. It's an emotionally raw story about a young man who joins the Marines for probably not-so-great reasons, isn't particularly well-suited to it, and ends up badly broken by his traumatic experiences. Uriarte is a cartoonist and former Marine whose webcomic Terminal Lance became popular with Corps members and vets. Here he does a pivot from cartoon humor strips to a serious graphic novel, and it's clear he has talent for both kinds of work. It's not a universal story about military experience, because everyone in the military has their own story, but it is an important one.

Drawings and dialogue are okay, characters and storytelling just so so; acronyms and jargon could have been better explained. Emotional ending.

war is hell I guess, I don't have any experience so I don't know. I do know that PTSD is a real thing and affects a myriad of service personel here in Canada and the States. It read more like a comic book than a novel but with out being long and drawn out, an interesting albeit short read.
