  • As they say love or hate spontaneous crude lewd erotic shit laughs. Prefer refined Prison Pit but dis ain't bad. Or rather it is bad that makes it good ? yeah . intentional lowbrow gross out ala Crumb. Racist sexist unabashed and revelling in filth. Bought used copy at a hippie bookstore because I had too. Like stumbling cross a G Allin rekkid at a church garage sale.


  • Gloriously puerile and amazingly stupid, Angry Youth Comics is charged with an anarchic spirit. The adventures of simpering nerd Sinus O'Gynus and Loady McGee, a sulking misfit who resembles a grown up and acne-scarred Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes (or perhaps a cousin of Beavis and Butthead), culminate in crescendos of bloody horror as often as punchlines; the humor and horror complement one another quite well. Ryan has a knack for evoking the crushingly mundane as well as spinning weird flights [...]



  • Probably the most un-PC, disgusting, childlike drawings ever put to paper. I recommend this to ANYONE who isn't sensitive and enjoys a great LAFF.Nasty fun in little poo-covered bites.


  • This is the best of the Angry Youth Collections so far. I find I like Johnny Ryan's gags and spoofs more than his ongoing Loady McGee and Sinus O'Gynus strips.


  • "Her cunt was so dry and crusty, it was like fucking a bag of potato chips."Oh Johnny Ryan, how I love you!
