Press Release


Rob Schrab concludes the SCUD saga!
Scud #21 coverNovember 20th, 2007 (Berkeley, CA) - After a decade of anticipation, Rob Schrab and Image Comics finally release SCUD: THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN #21, the beginning of the four-issue finale for his ever-popular death dealing robot.
"Even after all this time it's hard to say goodbye," writer/artist Rob Schrab said. "I was working on a thirty-two page conclusion to include in a collection of all the previous material, but it grew to well over a hundred pages. Image and I agreed this warranted its own release and it's for the better. The ending is now an entirely different beast, one I couldn't be any prouder about."
While February will mark ten years to the month since Schrab produced SCUD: THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN #20, he has remained busy in Hollywood, directing such hits as MONSTER HOUSE and THE SARAH SILVERMAN PROGRAM. His comics connection continues with SILVERMAN, as he works alongside other Image creators such as LAST CHRISTMAS' Brian Posehn and GRRL SCOUTS' Jim Mahfood. Mahfood will also supply the cover to issue #22, with other cover artists including Ashley Wood, Doug Tennapel and David Hartman.
SCUD: THE DISPOSABLE ASSASSIN #21 (DEC072049), a four-issue black & white miniseries for $3.50, will be available in stores February 13th.
