** Similarly, Crosshairs and Pyro are ambushed by about 6 Yellows

* GloriousMotherRussia: Or some kind of eastern European, for actors in the movie. In the comic, the soldiers act and have and have names like Americans.



* TheMovie: A half-hour short film, which can be accessed on page 49. AdaptationDistillation, as there's not much of the black comedy and is simply depressing post-apocalyptia.
** ApocalypticLog: the dry radio announcements at the start
** FantasticDrug: A.T.A.C. syringes, which Gunless is hopelessly addicted to. Sniperguy bumming one off him signals his DespairEventHorizon at the very end.
** GloriousMotherRussia: The actors have Russian, or some kind of east European, accents.
** LandMineGoesClick: One scene has the two stumble into a minefeild; Gunless just runs across, trusting to blind luck.

** BigWhat: Crosshair's reaction to [[spoiler: getting out of the city, only to find out that it was just a nature reserve site all along]]... And we still don't know if ''that'' is an April's Fool joke, though.

Was on a hiatus for almost a year, returned with the author promising an update once a month, twice a month if the readers bribe him, then slipped back into hiatus.

The strip ended in 2015.

* PostApocalypticGasmask: The setting is pretty apocalyptic (radiation and buildings appear to be in a state of disrepair). It's not apocalyptic enough that it prevents 3 factions fighting using tanks and planes. Each of the three armies has its own design. All the characters wear gas masks, due to the city's high levels of pollution, poison gas and fallout.
* PsychoForHire: Almost all characters appear to, more or less, fall into this category. And when we find out that soldiers get promoted based on their "body count", it pretty much seems like this is whomever's-in-charge's idea of his/her troops as well. Of course, it could also be because they're all bored out of their minds.

''[[http://www.blastwave-comic.com Gone With The Blastwave]]'' is a webcomic created by Kimmo Lemetti. It follows a group of soldiers fighting (for reasons they're more than a little hazy about) in a ruined city of a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]] world. It "is not a very serious comic", having a lot of BlackComedy - the author advises you to "think of it as a some kind of a parody" of more serious post-apocalyptic settings.
