Sunday Funny: Downrange Comics


This is a relatively new military-themed comic, as best I can tell (key word being relatively). The artist takes illustrations from FMs and TMs, apparently, and puts his own script in. As you might expect, his commentary is pretty sarky...which is why I love it.

There's no contact information on his Facebook page, which thus far is the only place to see it, but hopefully at some point we'll be able to get in touch with him and maybe do a short interview or obtain some background for you. In the meantime, check out the comics.From the arguably well meaning tyranny of the FRG to the sagacity of new lieutenants...he has a great wit.

I won't say which one (it's not on here), but one of them caused an involuntary combination black-and-tan-and-snot exfil the other night when I read it (though to be fair I was on my fifth black-and-tan, and my ability to hold my liquor is somewhat less than legendary). Did that sentence read correctly? If not, let me be plain: I'm saying I snorted beer and boogers out my nose when I read one of them, which makes it really hard to look cool at the bar.  Hopefully you'll find them at least somewhat amusing, even if you haven't been drinking.
