They put the SASS in ASSASSIN!

Meet Max & Alex. Reformed intergalactic assassins-for-hire. On the run. Also super gay. Their former boss–a fluffy monkey with a jetpack–is hot on their tail to take back his stolen ship. They gotta eat (tacos preferably), so they take a mission from Alex’s old flame. Your standard no-kill, casualty-free kidnapping recovery from a nearby moon. Only complication? Half the moon is ruled by a fascist dictator hostile to foreigners. They’re the Killer Queens, so what could possibly go wrong?

Pretty much everything.
