Praise for The Terminal Lance Ultimate Omnibus
"Hilarious.... A winking self-awareness and compassion for the daily drudgery of the grunt's life make his collection more than a mere peek into a troop's insider experience--he's poised to become a Bill Maudlin for the social media generation."
"A clear-eyed view of life as a grunt.... The strips, drawn in a simple, unadorned style, sardonically depict the near-daily tribulations and occasional pleasures of military life.... A rare opportunity for those on the home front to get a sense of the true concerns and feelings of those deployed overseas."
"It was 2010 when Uriarte, a lance corporal in the Marine Corps, created the online comic 'Terminal Lance,' which swiftly developed a fan base. Using some of the same characters, he created a more serious and involved graphic novel, THE WHITE DONKEY, based on his 2007 deployment in Iraq."
—Carolyn Kellogg, The Los Angeles Times
"A masterpiece."—Ray Olson, Booklist (starred review)
"In many ways, The White Donkey is one long illustrated deployment journal.... Yet, tucked into the panels and frames, are those singular moments that, like a rock cast into a pond, send their ripples out almost infinitely-altering lives and ending others. The White Donkey follows the tremors, backwards and forwards, and manages to illustrate what feels like a 'true' war story and a lonely chapter in a war our country is trying desperately to forget."—The Washington Post
"In The White Donkey, a sense of alienation pervades Abe's experience. He endures the tedium of war, the yearning for action to gain legitimacy in the eyes of fellow Marines, and, finally, the horror of combat... all drawn with stylized realism."—The Wall Street Journal
