There're plenty of gangs in Los Angeles: north of downtown it's the Paid-in-Spades, and down south, past Washington, there's nothing. There's the East-Side Firegirls and Thee Suertes, and past El Pueblo, on the west side, it's the One Tricks. That's what Tubby is, a One Trick, but he's hungry to be someone else, someone out of Los Angeles. He and his girl Vim want to split, but before they can, they need some cash. And that's what the One Tricks got, about a quarter million. If their plan comes off, they're set for life. If it doesn't, their lives don't matter much anyway. After a year-long run in Dark Horse Presents, The One-Trick Rip-Off is collected here in its entirety. It's a tour de force of pure, kinetic storytelling that will keep your eyes peeled until the very last page.
