Webcomic: Weapon Brown
Weapon Brown versus Alley Oop

"I've got a lot of names, depending on who you ask. I'll let you call me Chuck."
"I kill for a living. There's a lot of guys in my line of work, and they're all cheaper than me. If all you want is to put a hole in somebody, you hire one of them."
"But if you want to take out a tank crew of battle-hardened scum and fall asleep knowing they died screaming —"
"You call good ol' Weapon Brown."
Chuck "Weapon" Brown

It is years after the last war, and the world has ended.

The fighting, though, that still continues.

Surviving — no, thriving — in this world is "Weapon" Brown, a cybernetic mercenary with absolutely no pity and balls that could crack diamonds. Together with his man-eating dog Snoop, they eke out a living as a pair of mercenaries. If you want something done to someone, don't need any questions answered, and absolutely need to make sure the poor bastards suffer, you call Weapon Brown.

In other words, Weapon Brown is Peanuts, only set After the End and Grim Darker than Warhammer 40,000. Filled with great art and Shout Outs to just about every syndicated comic out there, Weapon Brown Needs More Love.

The comic started out as a side project to cartoonist, Jason Yungbluth's, comic, Deep Fried. The first Weapon Brown story was called A Peanut Scorned, and was originally included as a bonus in the printed versions of issues 1-4 of Deep Fried. It starts off by telling the origin story of Charles "Weapon" Brown, and sequences into his quest to save his red-haired girlfriend from his insane former friend, Linus van Pelt, who plans to use her in his attempt to finally summon The Great Pumpkin, all while he runs into other characters from the Peanuts universe.

Yungbluth would eventually shift gears, and made Weapon Brown his main focus. Having already used the characters from Peanuts, he decided to widen the scope, and include elements and characters from just about every newspaper strip out there, in order to make the bigger and more epic follow-up, Blockhead's War, which ran for five issues until 2013.

Yungbluth is currently working on releasing a full omnibus book, containing all the Weapon Brown comics stories loads of extra material as well as a new holiday themed story about the eternally grim hero.

It can be read at http://www.whatisdeepfried.com/, starting Here. It is most certainly Not Safe for Work, with nudity, sex, and Gorn.
