  1. Hmm I have never heard of Scud before.  Odd that he waited so many years and actually returned.  Is this out in trades or will it be?  The art looks amazing.

    I believe the logic in showing his ex something through the comic book medium is flawless by the way, in the sense that we get comics. 

  2. love the mini’s thanks for all the hard work.  I was intrigued when you mentioned this book a few weeks back in the podcast.  Now that you showed some interior art I think i need to check it out thanks.

  3. I think that, and this is unconfirmed, but after these issues are finished, it will all be collected into one big volume.

  4. I do love my big collections mmm

  5. Well, I had only heard of Scud from an earlier episode you guy’s did a couple of weeks ago, and now with this mini-episode I’m actually intrigued, but I do think I’ll wait for the hardcover or trades of it.

  6. I love Scud.  Perfect timing too.  Rob Schrab’s on the cover a local newszine this week.

    @josh: Scud the Disposable Assassin: The Whole Shebang! TPB is part of the June 2008 solicitations from Image. It will include issues 1-24 and a one-shot, all for $19.99. I’m sold.

  8. @Jfernandes – which solicitations have you found this wonderful news at.  Like I said I’m a suck for collections, especially at such a fantastic price.

  9. JFernandes (@jdfernandes) says:

    @jstump, that was the solicitation provided by CBR. Upon looking at the newest Previews order book, the price is actually $29.99. Still a great price for 25 issues. I’m still sold.
