Scud: The Disposable Assassin #21
Rob Schrab

$3.50 US
**** (out of five)

Every time I hear someone complain about the final issue of Planetary or some other long-delayed series, I drop Scud on them.
There’s no disputing how great it would be to see Planetary #27 after the over two years comic fans have been waiting, but it’s been a whopping 10 years since we last saw an issue of Rob Schrab’s indie classic, Scud: The Disposable Assassin — and it left off on a cliffhanger!
Now Schrab is a Hollywood bigwig — he co-wrote the CGI flick Monster House and is a writer, director and producer on The Sarah Silverman Program — but he’s committed to finishing what he started with four final issues.
The question is: Can the lovable robot hitman complete his last mission: Destroy the world in order to be reunited with his true love in heaven?
It’s simply awesome to see Schrab’s work again and the closure we’ve all been wanting is finally close at hand.
