Johnny Ryan is the most acclaimed humor cartoonist to hit the comics scene since Peter Bagge (who neatly provides an introduction to this volume) and the creator of the ongoing comics series Angry Youth Comics. His dirty, lowbrow, gross-out humor (definitely not for kids, unlike his work for Nickelodeon Magazine) has earned him raves from comics luminaries since he began the series in the early 1990s. Portajohnny collects Ryan's "greatest hits" from his own self-published comic books as well as a host of anthologies like Zero Zero, Measles, Goody Good Comics and elsewhere. Featured are such mini-masterpieces as "The Nudist," in which a naked superhero battles the evil Captain Candy, a supervillian who wants to rot the teeth of our nation's children by having them eat the gumdrops that coat his entire body. The book also introduces Loady McGee, Ryan's most popular character — a misanthropic, acne-scarred hustler who will try anything to avoid getting a real job. In an age when the medium is growing up and aspiring to more mature and lofty literary heights, Ryan builds on the visceral tradition of cartooning that has tickled our collective funny bone for over a century.

"Poignant and crude and offensive and the funniest thing we've ever seen... Portajohnny is living proof that the best way to make an omelet hilarious is to break every egg in the grocery store." – Vice

"I like Johnny Ryan's work. It's very raunchy!" – Edward Gorey

"Johnny's work is repulsive AND hilarious, which is a great combination." – Joe Sacco
