NOTE
I had no intention of writing a review for this, until I saw how diminutive the other is (there's only one at the time of this writing).

ABOUT SCUD
What can one say about Scud? Scud is one of the more eclectic, bizarre comics out there. Oddball pop-culture references wrapped in a macabre, twisted sense of humor abound. For those of you unfamiliar with the series, think of it as a mix of The Tick (Edlund's version), and Lobo.

The story itself follows the adventures of a disposable robot whose duty it is to dispose of a target and then self-destruct. Through an accident of fate, Scud realizes the catch-22 of his charge, and compromises by permanently (he thinks) incapacitating his target, doing assassination side-work to cover the life-support bills.

As the storyline progresses, the reader becomes aware that "Jeff", his initial target, is in fact an instrument of biblical prophesy, and his actions have resulted in his now being firmly enmeshed in a titanic struggle between heaven, hell, psychotic robots, and the lunatic fringe of civilian society.

ABOUT THIS BOOK (EDITION)
This is a truly strange, yet uncannily satisfying series, but, like the original Tick comics, are almost entirely out of print. Thus, this edition, the Whole Shebang, a graphic novel encompassing ALL of the issues released (plus a few bonuses more) is fully worth it. There won't be any more, and, with as peculiar of a demographic as this book targets, even it won't be around long, most likely.

This book contains the whole run of the series, including the four-part resolution, published after Scud's ten-year hiatus (the author, Rob Schrab, had decided he wished to focus on other projects, leaving his readership hanging with a decade-long cliffhanger).

The final four issues of Scud came out this year after a 10 year hiatus. That's a long time to wait for the end of a story. Fortunately it was a very satisfying ending, managing to wrap up a number of loose ends that barely seemed connected at first. Who knows what the story would have been had Schrab never decided to shelve Scud for so long, but I don't know if it could have been much better.

Scud: The Disposable Assassin was just about the most bada** thing I'd ever read when I picked up my first issue back in the mid-90's. The story takes place in a future so wild and lawless that robot assassins, or Scuds, can be purchased from vending machines (called "venting machines") for pocket change. The main character is one of these assassins.

During a violent battle with his target, Scud discovers a warning label on his back that says he'll self-destruct upon elimination of his target. Not wanting to die, Scud critically wounds the target, puts her in the hospital, and begins freelancing to pay the bills.

The adventure that follows takes Scud around the planet, into outer space, through multiple dimensions, to the center of Earth, and to Heaven itself. Yeah, it's epic. It's also hilarious.

Along the way Scud makes friends with a stuff-collector named Drywall, who has miles of storage space inside his body from which he can pull objects at will (though what exactly he pulls out isn't always predictable). He makes an arch nemesis in Voodoo Ben Franklin (apparently the original Ben Franklin, just more evil). And he falls in love with a mysterious robotophile named Sussudio.

If you like stories about zombie dinosaurs, werewolf astronauts, android mafias, things getting all explodey, robot-on-human love, endless amounts of senseless bloodletting and dismemberment, and cowboys, then Scud might be something you should check out.

Comic books in my day where hard to come by in my neck of the woods, and if there were any, it was usually either Batman, Superman, or some other usual super hero book, and frankly, I couldn't get into them to save my life. I had heard about Scud, though for the life of me, I can't exactly remember when (that was 20 years ago give or take), and for the longest time, I tried finding even a single issue, with zero success, and my parents were too keen on driving all over the city just to "find some comic book", as they said. So for the longest time, I had all but forgotten it, until several years ago when I happened to watch a short film that was also from Rob Schrab (Robot Bastard). That's when my hunt started again, this time around yielding some, but not very promising results. Bummed that I wasn't going able to finish the collection, I found out that The Whole Shebang existed. I ordered one, which turned out to be a late birthday present, and since then, I've read The Whole Shebang more times than looking at my high school year books.

Scud isn't your typical hero. In fact, he's pretty much a anti-hero. He looks very impressive in the vending machine, but once he gets out, he slumps over with a look on his face (if you can call it that) that he would rather be doing something else. Tasked to kill a monster, whom he decides to call her (yes, her) Jeff, he finds out through complete accident that once he finishes her off, he will go boom. Thinking "F that, I got better things to do", Scud dismembers this beast and decides to go freelance so he can keep paying her life support bill (almost sounds like a marriage to me).
