Hi, I’m bringing you a translation of the Gangsta. special comic/mini-manga included in the Blu-rays! The scans were provided by the lovely @twilight-in-ergastulumhere, but you can also download them from the great @fuckyeahgangsta blog here (thank you to both!).
First off, my Japanese isn’t perfect, so take it with a grain of salt. I had my friends @putschki1969 and @nappynapkin help out (ありがとう! ٩꒰๑ ´∇`๑꒱۶). English is neither my first nor my second language, so please excuse any mistakes! Everything might not be correct, but the gist of it is there. Also, I strongly advise you not to use these translations for scanlations!
Bug Boys: Volume 1
Laura Knetzger Bug Boys: Volume 1 follows the adventures of two young beetles, Rhino-B and Stag-B, in their home of Bug Village and beyond. Along the way, they meet new bug friends, face their fears, and see their friendship grow stronger while they grow as individuals. Bug Boys is a truly all-ages comic - appealing to kids and adults alike. Knetzger perfectly captures the emotions of growing up with the right touch of candor, affection and light-heartedness. Including a brand new twelfth issue, this collection will contain every issue of Bug Boys to date - some in print for the first time.
“Bug Boys gives me what I missed from the best all-ages books: warmth and friendship up against danger and high stakes, and a vibrant imagination at play. Burrow in.” – Annie Mok, Rookie Mag
“Bug Boys is a true delight.” – Kris Mukai, Commuter
"I love the Bug Boys comic because it vibrates with the pulse of life. It is a joy to marvel at the vital living soul that these drawings possess. Bug Boys forever!” – James Kochalka, American Elf and Johnny Boo
"Knetzger is a great cartoonist. I enjoy how she spaces words on the page. It’s breezy and bold, like a combination of comics and picture books. Bug Boys reminds me of how much fun it is to go camping and climb trees. Let’s all go do that after we read this book.” – Dash Shaw, Bodyworld and New School
