Brute Krulak Center of Innovation and Creativity

 

ABOUT THE BOOK
This is the first graphic novel used to explore the future of the Marine Corps written and illustrated by Marines. The stories in this graphic novel explore such topics as Marine- manned satellites, laser communication, and artificial intelligence (AI) selecting potential recruits and assisting Marine Corps Special Operations Command (MARSOC) operations in real time. By doing so in fictional comic book form, the results are far more accessible, inventive, and engaging than any white paper could be. 

ABOUT THE BRUTE KRULAK CENTER FOR INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY
Inspired by its namesake, the Brute Krulak Center for Innovation and Creativity enables an interdisciplinary approach to complex problem solving, fosters an environment that enhances our collective warfighting capability, and facilitates and encourages novel solutions to current and future warfighting challenges in order to expand the Corps’ competitive edge and improve our warfighting effectiveness.

In 2019 and 2020, several organizations within the Department of Defense recognized the Destination Unknown teams and Marine Corps University for serving as innovation in education, writing, and thinking. We believe these awards are more than a recognition of past and current work, but what may lie ahead if we continue to pursue this intellectual path . . .
