Angry Youth Comix Hardcover

Johnny Ryan
Johnny Ryan
Johnny Ryan's utterly unpretentious taboo-tackling is an infectious and hilarious bombardment of political incorrectness, taking full advantage of the medium's absurdist potential for maximum laughs. In an age when the medium is growing up and aspiring to more mature and hoity-toity literary heights, Ryan builds on the visceral tradition that cartooning has had on our collective funny bone for over a century. Now, for the first time, all fourteen issues of Ryan's career-defining comic book series Angry Youth Comix (2000-2008) are collected in one place. All the comics, the covers, and even the contentious letters pages, in one toilet-ready brick shithouse.
 
"More than worth its price in pure mirth. But there's more! ...This newest issue sees the artist's signature series move further than ever into straight-up horror/exploitation territory, without losing a lot of ground in comedy. ...Fascinating work." – Jog - The Blog
 
"A lot of people’s Top Ten Favorite-est Comics of the Year lists this year will involve comics about Israel or the exquisite sadness of being an Asian man who likes blondes, all that stuff; mine will involve cheeseburger-flavored semen...? I got dropped on my head a lot as a baby." – Abhay Kholsa, The Savage Critics
 
"The new Angry Youth Comix is finally out and it may be the darkest cartoon we've ever seen and also the most hilarious... It also features one of the most honest depictions of the American family dynamic to appear in print, though we can see that aspect maybe getting lost for some readers amid the turd-vines and the synthetic ejaculates." – Vice
 
"Let me tell you something: In this increasingly cynical world of happily self-imposed isolation and sneering judgement, one graphicish novella, with pixie-like tickles, appears through the misty mist to take us all by the hand gently unto the night. You hold in your hand that very thing. Johnny Ryan's Angry Youth Comix. Now go away." – David Cross
 
"That Ryan has managed to craft — and I meant that, craft — such unblemished, unapologetic juvenilia and actually transport it to a level which I might be willing to concede is art, all while having it revolve around characters with names like Boobs Pooter, just makes me love comics all the more." – Rack Raids
