    Obviously some of Pope’s earliest work, but pretty cool to see his evolution of craft through the couse of this book. The first story in here, The One Trick Rip Off, is a sort of magical realist crime story that was originally serialized through Dark Horse Presents in the early nineties. The later half is made up of various short stories. These are really what grabbed me about this collection. Towards the end, Pope’s style becomes much more refined and closely resembles his work in 100%
