William Price, Jr., brings the Literature section back full circle to the topic of war veterans with his study of Maximilian Uriarte’s 2016 graphic novel The White Donkey: Terminal Lance. Treating the graphic war novel as a genre in and of itself and employing White Donkey as a case in point, Price notes the form’s special use of colour, psycho-narration, and process for stripping away the heroic, larger-than-life qualities often attached to soldiers. As he argues, “The graphic war novel demythologises the Soldier by undermining heroic mythoi identifiable with a combat veteran to attack preconceptions about the archetype of the Soldier and even war itself.”
