Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Pope has long been admired for his unique global comics fusion, mixing the sensuous brushwork of European comics, the dynamic layouts and pacing of Japanese manga, and the punk ethos of American youth. This collection of early rarities shows the artist dabbling in styles and developing a distinct visual and narrative voice. The centerpiece, drenched in a Reservoir Dogs–like sense of unraveling calamity, follows two young lovers through a doomed attempt to ditch town with a cache of stolen cash. Also included are various pieces that are closer to poems than stories and some work Pope made while attempting to carve out a career during the burgeoning manga boom of the late 1990s. The hodgepodge whole presents a stylistically dazzling, substantively middleweight, and revealing look at Pope’s early work. The collection should slake, at least briefly, fans’ thirst for his upcoming Battling Boy, easily one of the most highly anticipated graphic novels of the year. --Ian Chipman

Same with the artwork, it's all Pope but the art is adjusted to fit each story.
Jacob R. York
And i have always wanted a nice collected edition of this story to put next to my copies of 100% and heavy liquid!
Christopher Haney
This book looks great and has all of Paul Pope stories of "One Trick Rip-Off / Deep Cuts" in one big book.

If you've never read Paul Pope's work this is the best starting point and introduction available. It's not one long graphic novel but several different full length stories over almost 300 pages. The strengths of it being essentially an anthology are there are several genres and story types covered yet they all are distinctly Pope. Same with the artwork, it's all Pope but the art is adjusted to fit each story. So you don't just get one version of Pope, but several. The new coloring is fantastic yet a few stories are one or two colors. Coloring with purpose, again to suit each story. The presentation is also the best of any of Pope's in-print works, hardcover with no annoying dust cover. Shiny and smooth, the name of the material escapes me. Sewn binding and decently thick, glossy pages that allow the inks and colors to simply pop. Overall, what more could you want in an anthology collection of Paul Pope? Anyways, if you want to read surely one of the coolest reads out there in 2013, get this now. Pope has several new books this year including Battling Boy. If you want to get caught up, get a primer of his work, or haven't tried Pope's work before now but don't want to commit to a full length graphic novel, this is for you. If you're a Pope fan, get this first chance you get. There is something here for fans of all types comics. European style comics, manga, sci-fi, crime, hell even film influences such as Tarintino. Phew. Did not expect to ramble on for so long but in case you couldn't tell, I loved this book.

In December when I saw this book was being released I literally S#@T a Kitten! I had only read The Tragic tale of Vim And Tubby once before when i was lucky enough to have a friend that was obsessed with Dark horse presents! And i have always wanted a nice collected edition of this story to put next to my copies of 100% and heavy liquid!
I must say the One trick rip-off looks stunning in full color and stands the test of time to prove it is still as amazing of a piece of glorious and tragic story telling as it was back in the early 90s! But that is not the kicker for me this Book also contains amazing epic Shot stories told from mr. Pope's Point of view That give you an insight into his creativeness! And then Above all that there is One short in particular that is above the rest it is only a few pages long, but is the most beautiful story I have ever sen in graphic form! "Portrait of a girl with an unpronounceable name" Just moved me in a way i have not felt since I read brian Wood's Local!
I hope this book helps Launch other great rare works of Mr. pope in collected form such as THB and Escapo! BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU ARE A FAN OF INDY COMICS, OR IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO INDY COMICS, OR IF YOU WANT A TRUE HUMAN STORY AND EXPERIENCE MIXED WITH SCI FI AND COMIC PULP!!!!
THANK YOU PAUL POPE!!! I can't wait to read battling boy!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By DelusionalAngel VINE VOICE on February 27, 2013
Format: Hardcover
A beautifully drawn 2 for 1 kind of comic / graphic novel. The main part is the longer story (One Trick Rip-off), which is basically a story of a bad guy (Tubby) who no longer wants to be a bad guy. How to get out of such a life? Rip off your fellow bad guys, because, you know who else to rip-off but people who already kind of deserve it and likely got their money by stealing it anyway. Tubby and his girlfriend (Vim) have it all planned out. Surely nothing can go wrong with dealing with a bunch of psychos.

Next up is Deep Cuts. Did I say this is a 2 for 1.. Okay, maybe a bunch for 1 as Deep Cuts is really a bunch of shorter comics, some of which are truly just "shorts" and some of which are just shorter than the main attraction but still a decent length. The one that will stick with my the longest, being one where the artist recounts a dream that disfigured his face, leaving him (more) reclusive while a woman attempts to encourage to get over his insecurities. The main theme in these shorts is that they tend to occur in a different city and really reflect the nature of that city in some way.

While I would probably rate the main story a 3-4 storywise, the book as a whole is too good to rate it that low. The art is stunning and the themes and stories overall are excellent. 5/5 stars as a whole book, even if the main story felt a little bland.

Paul Pope's work is a narrative and visual marvel. Drawing inspiration in equal part from Japanese and European comics but these nuances and elegant flair is built atop explosive and dynamic compositions that are pure Kirby and thus inherently All- American at the core.

The collection is the perfect primer for the uninitiated: containing both early and formative as well as more recent and assured work as well as the rare manga pages Pope did for a Japanese Publisher.
