Sure, she's smelly and gross, but she's got a heart of gold! This is the second collection of Johnny Ryan's weekly comic strip, Blecky Yuckerella, as seen in the pages of Vice magazine and elsewhere. Blecky is a four-panel gag strip in the tradition of Underworld, Maakies, and Nancy, but with much more generous portions of bodily fluids and toilet humor. Blecky Yuckerella is the ugliest girl in the second grade, and the only one with three-day stubble. The strip's cast of characters also includes Blecky's Aunt Jiggles, her best friend Wedgie, Insanio the Cat, and many other absurdist goofballs, like Rich Bucksley (millionaire and "high class idiot"), Unitard (the last retarded unicorn), the pregnant babies ("we're guaranteed to blow your mind!"), and Quasimodo Rose (the hunchback porn star). Back In Bleck collects over 100 strips for the first time, and his unmistakable blend of politically incorrect gags and social satire is as sharp as ever.
"Blecky Yuckerella is Ryan's broad-stroke conflation of Nancy and Little Orphan Annie transmogrified into a nightmare so creatively scatological you can't help but laugh." – The Boston Globe
"This guy is literally the funniest cartoonist living in the world today. These sick vignettes about his anti-heroine Blecky Yuckerella deserve to go down in history alongside Peanuts and Garfield." – Vice
