The Best Book For the Whole Gang!

This volume from Paradox Press gives you a wonderful illustration of the history of gang warfare. See the forerunners of today's Crips and Bloods! You'll love all the art, and the writing is good, too.

Caveat Emptor

This is another book review by Wolfie and Kansas, the boonie dogs from Toto, Guam. "The Big Book of Thugs" contains vignettes by 57 different comic artists about notorious gangs and mobs. We read this book because we heard there was a section about a gang called "the Hounds". It turned out that "the Hounds" was simply a name for a human gang. However, dogs do play a role in some of the stories in this book. A canine trained to snatch purses was an early member of the Crazy Butch Gang. The "emperor" of the Highbinder Society used dogs as bodyguards. We think these examples just show that there is no such thing as a bad dog. There are only good dogs trained by bad humans. . . . The art in this book is outstanding. The book is in black and white, but that is not a problem for relatively color blind animals like ourselves. Another big plus is that, unlike two of the four other Paradox Press "Big Books" that our noncanine animal companion ordered on the net or by mail, "The Big Book of Thugs" was not missing several pages in the middle
