Among cartoonist Jason Yungbluth's various comic series is "Weapon Brown," which is set in a post-apocalyptic world that follows the Last War. The story follows a set of survivors and their hardscrabble life, and centers around Chuck, who has been transformed from a refugee into a cold-hearted, murderous cyborg-for-hire by the Syndicate. But when Chuck is offered a chance to give the world a fresh start, the hardened citizen must decide if he doesn't prefer things exactly as they are. In a clever twist, each of the world-weary major characters are hardened versions of classic comic strip characters.
