Stuff I Like: 3 Thug Mice

Thanks to ReelPop for pointing me to 3 Thug Mice, “the handiwork of NY illustrator Steve Marcus, with voices supplied by graf legend Min-One, plus Queens rapper Kool G Rap, and controversial Biggie/Mobb Deep/Wu-Tang collaborator R.A. The Rugged Man.”

This is an outgrowth of a comic strip from Source Magazine.  There are now 12 short-but-sweet episodes that are a tribute to “old” New York complete with a lot of bad language and crude behavior.

The mixing of actual images of the city with Marcus’ great drawings give the series a unique flavor and feel.

This is not a series for everyone but I think it strikes an excellent balance of humor, art and brevity.
