Scud: The Disposable Assassin
The non-disposable ending to an amazing comic book
What is a disposable assassin? It a solid gold killer robot you buy out of a vending machine that explodes after it kills it's target. What is a comic book? It is an ongoing or encapsulate story revolving around a protagonist. For ten long years Scud only met the former definition. In 1994 artist Rob Schrab started Scud, but in 1997 issue number 21 ended in a cliffhanger. No further issues were printed...
I gave up hope, I stopped looking.
Then, it happened I was randomly in a comic book shop and discovered that in 2007 Rob Scharb came back to Scud, and finished the series with four final issues. I highly recommend anyone who followed this in the 90s to pick up these comics.
