Comics Are for Idiots!: Blecky Yuckerella Vol. 3 by Johnny Ryan

Comics Are for Idiots!: Blecky Yuckerella Vol. 3
By Johnny Ryan

The stupidest, ugliest, stubbliest girl in grade number two is back and so are the zits, boogers, guts, tumors, and turds in her third collection of riotously hilarious, eye-poppingly offensive four-panel gag strips. Co-starring the usual cast of Blecky's weirdo friends and enemies, plus jelly clones, morbidly obese Jesus, the Blumpkins, slug nuts, aliens, talking belches, the beloved New Character Parade and oh so much more. Over 100 pages of ridiculous absurdity, over-the-top grossouts, and scathing satire as only Johnny Ryan can deliver.

104-page black & white 6.5" x 8.5" softcover • $11.99

The Comics Journal #294

The Comics Journal #294
Edited by Mike Dean & Kristy Valenti; Gary Groth, executive editor

Art speaks louder than words when the Journal interviews two cartoonists who have had success with “silence.” Norwegian Jason, who populates comics, such as Hey, Wait…, The Left Bank Gang and I Killed Adolf Hitler with deadpan anthropomorphic animals, muses on the thin line between tragedy and laughter and why B-movie creations continue to resonate with the 21st century public. Lio comic-strip cartoonist Mark Tatulli talks to the Journal about bringing kids and ghouls together on the Funny Pages in Lio, one of the most innovative and entertaining comics strips in recent decades. And a color comics gallery goes back to the early days of one of the world’s longest-running comic strips: Billy DeBeck’s Snuffy Smith precursor, Take Barney Google, F’rinstance, spanning 1919 to 1921.

Rocky Vol. 2: Strictly Business
By Martin Kellerman

To start things off, Rocky manages to wheedle himself a free trip to New York as a reporter covering a gaming convention; a glutton for punishment, he looks up the girl he knocked up in Rocky Vol. 1 and gets a BIG suprise! Rocky Vol. 2: Strictly Business is Fritz The Cat meets Jane Austen!?! Basically, it's the pottymouthed animal-headed Seinfeld-esque comic strip we've all come to love. Wont you join us for more?
