In this long-awaited issue, all of protagonist Loady McGee's worst (and most amusing) traits are brought to the fore as his obsessive quest reaches a fever pitch. His best friend, Sinus O'Gynus, finds himself at an unexpected crossroads in his life, forcing him to make several life-altering decisions. But whatever happened to Loady's girlfriend, Blubbina LaQuiche? That and many other answers are revealed as our protagonists walk and talk their way through the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan, all delineated in Ryan's evocatively pristine style. Or something like that.
"Is AYC #13 Ryan's best work? It may be. It certainly is the most consistent in terms of being funny, appalling, filthy, and ghastly... there has been no funnier cartoonist in American comics for at least the last three years." – Comic Book Bin
"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
