ENDWORLD #6 CITADEL RUN


THE CITADEL RUN:


It was a mission of mercy that turned into a run with death as Blade and the Alpha Triad tried to rescue the pathetic remnants of humanity from the festering sinkhole that had once been the Twin Cities.

Hickok instinctively blasted the rifleman first, his hands a blur as they drew the pearl-handled Colt Pythons, his right Magnum booming, and the rifleman staggered as the slug penetrated the middle of his forehead and blew out the back of his head.

Inside the SEAL, Geronimo clawed at the door handle. "They're Wacks!" he shouted, flinging the door open and jumping to the ground, the FNC Auto Rifle already at his shoulder as he aimed at a line of charging cannibals and squeezed the trigger. The Auto Rifle burped and four crazies dropped.

Blade joined the conflict, leaping from the driver's seat, the A-1 pressed against his right hip as he fired, the heavy slugs tearing into a group of attacking Wacks and decimating them in a crimson spray of blood and flesh.
