Earth-Two Romance

by Starsky Hutch 76, adapted from True Romance, screenplay by Quentin Tarantino

Stretch O’Brien, laying low in Gotham City since breaking out of juvie, meets the love of his life: Maggie. But when it turns out that Maggie is under the thumb of a small-time pimp, the crooked grandson of the original Plastic Man sets out to rectify things by killing him and stealing a briefcase full of cocaine, which he plans to sell to the highest bidder for a new life with his girl. But there’s just one problem: he’s crossed the Gorilla Mob, and Ape-Face himself is after him. Can our young antihero pull off the sale with a big Hollywood producer and escape with Maggie before the Gorilla Mob and the cops catch up to them? Stealing, cheating, killing — who said romance is dead?
