This issue of Angry Youth Comix begins with our protagonist Loady McGee diving head-first into the world of dating, only days after his unwitting, long-term girlfriend has left for an internship in New York. We follow his awkward and often humiliating attempts at connecting with several young women, all of whom happen to have blonde hair and blue eyes. We also watch the life of Loady's best friend, Sinus O'Gynus, take several dramatic turns for the worse. The issue closes with another cliffhanger of sorts, setting the stage for a major shift in Loady's life and the story itself. This is Ryan's most ambitious work to date: funny, compelling, and compulsively readable.
"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
