ONE TRICK RIP OFF HC
(W/A) Paul Pope
Young lovers Tubby and Vim want to escape - escape the mistakes they've made, the lives they've lived, and the dirty city weighing them down. Their plan is simple -all they have to do is rip-off Tubby's pals, the One Tricks - the toughest street gang in LA.
If they pull it off, they're set for life. If not, their lives won't matter much anyway.
What was going to be a smooth, straight-forward heist becomes a fast-paced battle to the death.
From Eisner Award-winning writer/artist PAUL POPE (Batman: Year 100, THB, Heavy Liquid, 100%) and presented for the first time in color by JAMIE GRANT (All-Star Superman). ONE TRICK RIP-OFF/DEEP-CUTS is 288 pages of raw power, of which over 150 pages are comprised of new, rare, and never before seen stories created during POPE's time traveling the world in the '90s.
Included in the "Deep Cuts" section is a bounty of unpublished and rare work POPE did in the '90s, including the legendary "Supertrouble" manga, created for Kodansha in Japan, appearing here in print for the first time.
It's a tour de force of pure, kinetic storytelling that will keep your eyes peeled until the very last page.
Alright boys and girls, bust out your wallets and thank the comic book gods that you can even buy something this awesome, something this rare all in one nicely crafted package! Paul Pope, known recently for his work on Batman Year 100, cut his teeth in the cutthroat industry of Japanese publishing as the only American to ever produce a weekly series for Kodansha with his totally rad, cutie-pie strip "Supertrouble" which is presented here for the first time, along with his inky rendition of L.A.'s slimy underbelly, "One trick Rip Off." Grat for fans of Brandon Graham, James Stokoe, Moebius, Hugo Pratt and anyone looking for supercharged, down and dirty comix!! RECOMMENDED BY CASEY!
