In his dreamland, Ralph quits NOW Comics, and demands that his agent Sal get him a job making big bucks as a syndicated Comic strip character. Back at his apartment, Ralph's superhero girlfriend SuperNympho hassles him to marry her. They have a fight, and he goes out and gets trashed at Fat Loo-Loo's dive.
Two executives from Dork features syndicate find Ralph passed out in an alley and sign him to a contract. Ralph later finds out that Dork has the right to kill him if he ever quits under the contract! Ralph is disgusted with the mindless drivel he has to act out, so he changes the scripts of his comic strip.
When the editors see the "new" strip, they are horrified! Meanwhile, Ralph gets back together with SuperNympho, and they fly off to be married.
