Bugsy Malone

I'm a big fan of Alan Parker's Bugsy Malone movie so I was delighted to find this graphic adaptation at a local charity shop the other day. It's from 1976 and would have cost you 95p for 64 pages of film adaptation. If you've never seen the film the prepare yourself for child actors and splurge guns not machine guns!
In Prohibition-era New York City, Fat Sam runs one of the most popular speakeasies in town - but his rival Dandy Dan is trying to shut him down. It's up to the baby-faced Bugsy Malone to save the day...Packed with thrills and spills (and more than a few custard pies and splurge), this is a mobster story with a twist - the stars are kids!


 The famous splurge guns...

 The book was reprinted in 2013
