Scud: The Disposable Assassin
Scud is a "Heart Breaker Series 1373" disposable assassin, a type of robot assassin that one can get from vending machine. Scud was sent to kill Jeff, a mutant with "mousetraps for hands, an electrical plug for a head, and a squid of a belt". However, by reading a label on his back via a mirror, Scud discovered if he completed his mission he'll explode. Not wanting that, after mortally wounding Jeff, he takes her to hospital and become freelance mercenary to pay bills.
The creator, Rob Schrab, abandoned the book on issue 21, but returned to resolve the cliffhanger.
