"Killer Tan", Way to Die #263, is the seventh and final death featured in "It's a Dead, Dead, Dead World", which aired on July 15, 2012.


Fredo and Allie B are two tanning-obsessed guidos. As part of a Friday night ritual, they meet at Allie's tanning salon before a wild night out. The two start off by spray tanning each other, but Fredo wants to be darker. Allie then reveals a stand-in spray tanning booth. The two begin to tan again, but Fredo wants to be darker but insists on having his cigarettes first. The spark from the lighter ignites the DHA fumes in the booth, creating a fireball, and the explosion kills them both by burning their entire bodies, nose, throat and lungs.
