Product Description

Complaining that Ryan's comics are grossly offensive, stupid and juvenile is like complaining that water is wet: that's the entire point. The raison d'etre of Ryan's work is pushing beyond the limits of tasteless humor into pure gross-out overload; the joke isn't the punch line itself, but how horrible the punch line is. This collection mostly compiles short stories from his Angry Youth Comics series, featuring recurring characters Boobs Pooter, Blecky Yuckerella, Loady McGee and Sinus O'Gynus, as well as his single-panel gag cartoons. (Sample caption: Whoa! Check out the size of the tits on that concentration camp! Actually, most of Ryan's jokes are unrepeatable in this magazine.) Ryan's sense of outrageousness is as tediously limited as a sixth-grader's; his repertoire is almost entirely excretory and/or sexual, with the odd decapitation or racist gag thrown in for variety. Occasionally, there's a flash of actual wittiness, like his brief, scatological condensations of Charles...

4.0 out of 5 stars What? 3 Jun 2008
By B. S. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
They're hilarious comedy gags. You know, goofs. Gooofaroonies. If you're from Wichita and you take things too seriously, you might not like this book. If you're just a regular person who likes comedy ha ha's and isn't afraid of a little "blue humor," you will like this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone... 24 Nov 2008
By Gavin Lees - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
...but I must admit to getting many a guilty giggle out of this collection. Johnny Ryan never seems afraid to take a gag into the furthest reaches of taste and depravity, or care about who he offends.

The jokes are sometimes hit or miss and often recurring ideas do wear a bit thin. But, for every mild fart or penis gag, there's always a retarded Hitler or rapist detective waiting around the corner for a final, hideous payoff.

If the humour of South Park and Viz is a little too mild for your taste, you're sure to love Ryan's material.
5.0 out of 5 stars My wife hates it! 13 Feb 2013
By Jon Carpus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My favorite part of Johnny Ryan's art is the detail he puts into the landscape of some of the panels. He takes time to carefully litter Loady and Sinus' world with garbage, fluids, cans, needles, bottles, dead stuff and any number of gross ephemera that really adds an interesting patina to the boob and poop jokes. Which are brilliantly taken to uncomfortable levels. Everything this guy does rules.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dimbulb Funnies 20 April 2008
By Rextrent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not very funny. Not good art. Not clever.
Disappointing and one of the worst examples of underground comics available.
This material might be enjoyable if your brain has been short-circuited and fried to a crisp, or you are an AntiSocial Psycho with nothing better to do.
