It’s not feasible for a Captain to turn every mission into Saving Private Ryan
So basically, four years ago when I started drawing this comic was around the time I’d started working as a professional animator, I started the website during the midseason break on the first season of Ugly Americans. Usually animators can count on being unemployed several months a year between big projects, so I started plotting out a MGDMT graphic novel to work on in my downtime that would explain a lot of Commander’s backstory. Fast forward four years and I have not actually ever had to deal with unemployment, so I’m kind of trying to abridge that story and inject it into the comic during regular updates or else you’ll never get a chance to see any of this backstory.
Anyway that’s a long-winded way of saying “I’m sorry this update is so terribly wordy”.
