The thugs bands were roaming cities trough the history and this book is full of stories about such bands. Sadly only few stries are from the another part of the world then America, which made this book little bit dull for non American reader. The most interesting story was about Indian sect, which gave thugs the name.

After seeing this book at some friends’ cabin, I was delighted to find a copy at Powell’s Book. Strange tales told in graphic novel format. Looks like the U.S. was a crazy place to live in its early days…
