Scud the Disposable Assassin is a graphic novel series by Creator/RobSchrab, set in a [[WorldOfWeirdness bizarre]], [[CrapsackWorld hideously amoral world]] where robotic assassins called Scuds are readily available on every street corner, and dispensed from vending machines. Scuds are deadly, agile, remorseless, heavily armed... and they explode upon terminating their assigned target, so you never have to worry about incriminating evidence.

* CaughtUpInTheRapture: The Rapture, apparently, took place right after the release of [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Ghostbusters 2]], and due to Satan never showing up and God refusing to throw the first punch, it ''never ended.''

Scuds are deadly, agile, remorseless, heavily armed... and they explode upon terminating their assigned target, so you never have to worry about incriminating evidence. Our protagonist is just another Scud, hired to clear out a pest control problem, a monstrous creature called Jeff. Realizing that killing Jeff means immediate death, Scud painfully immobilizes Jeff and has her hospitalized. Seeking the necessary cash to keep Jeff's medical bills paid, Scud now has to go freelance, in a world that seems doomed to eternal peril.

* CreatorBreakdown: This series was actually the result of one, there's a reason that the ending to the series [[spoiler: which is actually quite happy]] is called Death of the Over-Used Muse.



* ScheduleSlip: Years went between the last two issues, however TropesAreNotBad as this gave the creator a chance to give the series the ending it deserved and suffer a kind of inverse creator breakdown.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to the author the series was going to have a DownerEnding where Scud commited suicide and destroyed the world. [[spoiler: When the series went on a hiatus, the author grew out of his "angry little boy" phase and rethought his life and the comic. He thus decided to give Scud and everybody else a happy ending that basically told readers to tell depression to go fuck itself.]]
