One Trick Rip-Off

Overview

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 ...

Overview

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. The One-Trick Rip-Off is a tour de force of pure, kinetic storytelling that will keep your eyes peeled until the very last page.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Winner of the comics industry's prestigious Eisner Award for his THB series, Pope deftly presents a moving narrative of violence and hope in his latest graphic novel. Although urban gang clashes are a well-worn plot device, he breaks engaging new ground with a story that encompasses both treachery and tenderness with fundamental honesty. The One Tricks are an ethnically mixed gang operating in one of the many folds of L.A.'s underbelly. Their intramural and extramural conflicts are sparked not by stereotypical issues of drugs, turf or race, but by the lure of money. The chance to make off with $40,000 is enough to pit gang against gang; a quarter of a million turns out to be enough to break the unity of the One Tricks themselves. Money also is the ladder that courageous Tubby and his girlfriend, beautiful but insecure Vim, hope to climb to escape gang life. Though both are tough street fighters, their gentle moments are firmly grounded in their individual vulnerabilities. Pope's artwork is rich in selective detail. His figures, rendered with almost calligraphic fluidity, move through settings that can be airy and light or as crisp and dense as woodcuts. (May)
