Now that we’re preparing to say goodbye to Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (or at least we hopefully are), it’s a good time to look back on this controversial policy. And what better way to do that than by reading a hilarious nine-year-old comic book created by the military to explain the rules of neither asking or telling to our soldiers? Give up? I’m not surprised because there is literally no better way.
The comic book idea makes sense in theory. DADT is an incredibly complicated policy in practice so, instead of sitting all of the nation’s soldiers down for a lecture, the military gives them a comic. A comic about…a bunch of our nation’s soldiers sitting down for a lecture. Ugh. This may be the most boring comic book ever written. I’d tell you the full plot but about halfway through I gave up and started reading a Batwoman comic (did you know she’s a sexy lesbian now?). Still though the comic is pretty fascinating even if it is boring (and has a few panels where the speech bubbles are aligned in a completely confusing fashion). So check out some of our favorite pages from throughout the book below. For the full comic, go to the site Comics With Problems which originally uploaded it.
