Dead and Gone is the sixth and final comic book in the Modern Warfare 2: Ghost series published by Wildstorm Productions as a companion to the main series game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which was released in the same year.
It's twelve minutes before the terrorists will have to go through with their promise and the men and children are barely listening when the man explains that all of Northern Mexico was turned into a war zone because the Americans were going through the other cartels in the hope to get to Roba.
The man calls their attention again and explains that Roba's plan was to stay away from this war and come back and restore order when it was over. He'd be glorified as a hero and grow more powerful. So where Roba chose to hide was was his summer home in the jungles of Chiapas. This summer home was deep in the jungle, making it virtually invisible to anyone from above, the jungle around it was infested with tons of predators and parasites that could kill a man who was travelling by land. Even after getting through that danger, one would still have to worry about the patrols and the security.
Riley got past all of that. He managed to survive all of the animals and get to the edge of the property. From there he sniped at an entire patrol before they could react, then another, where he spared one man who was trying to call for help and just wounded him. He approaches and picks up a radio, and hears the men at the house asking what was going on. He looks up at the wounded man he spared and replies to the men by making him scream.
He sets off explosives that he planted around all the vehicular entrances and exits of the compound to make the Mexicans think that an entire army was attacking. After that he blows up the helicopter on the roof. Inside the building, Roba is being escorted by his men through a hallway when they hear gunshots around the corner. Riley suddenly appears and kills Roba's men with only a knife. Roba recognizes Riley from under the uniform and asks what he wants. Riley just says he wants revenge and holds up a disc where he says has all the information he needs on Roba's business which he got from a mainframe in the house.
Roba brings out a revoler and aims but gets hit in the arm with a knife from Riley. He runs back to his bedroom, followed by Riley who has brought out two pistols. Riley picks up a vase and throws it into the room and it gets shot into pieces. Riley dives in the room, guns blazing from both men. Roba, getting desperate, jumps out the window and down onto the first floor. Riley brings out a rifle and shoots him in the back. He approaches Roba who is still alive.
Roba, bleeding on the ground, says that his parents were gunned down at a market when he was six for no reason. He says that this experience opened his eyes and made him realize that the world was filled with billions of people and that two or one less people will not cause a shortage. He laughs and just says that he's just one man. Riley agrees, says that he's one man who really needs to leave the world and shoots him in the head.
Back at the school, the man says that there were thirty armed men who arrived at the scene after Roba was killed, but he said that Riley didn't go down without a fight, finishing his story. Suddenly, the leader enters the room again, shouting. They were way past the three o' clock dead line but they didn't have a child ready for slaughter. A terrorist pleads that they should just negotiate as another grabs a girl by the hair. The leader looks out the window and asks his colleague why the soldiers haven't attacked yet but is shot from the back of the head. The terrorist turns around sees the man, now unbound from his chair and holding a pistol, reply that they were just waiting for the first terrorist to go down.
Suddenly, soldiers rappel through the windows and start shooting at the terrorists. The man who was holding the girl tries to take her hostage but is shot by a sniper sitting on a helicopter outside. As the children are evacuated, the girl asks if the man was Riley. The man just replies that it was just a story.
