Boys will be B'hoys: a comic taste of Williams-boig
Great sun! If you love the street lingo of 19th century New York, then you should check out Beertown B’hoys at Zuda Comics, an online comic by Steve Bialik set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, circa 1894. It's a stylized take on New York's criminal element, following the adventures of street kids stealing and killing their way through the rough Brooklyn streets. It's currently in a competition to become an ongoing series, so pad a hoof over there and give it a vote, ya hear?
And just in case all the tawking confuses you, Bialik includes a glossery of terms on his regular website.
