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

Johnny Ryan sez on his blog: "Superfan Patrick O'Odonnell and friends have produced another cinematic masterpiece based on one of my comics. If you ever wondered what would happen if Stanley Kubrick fell out of the top floor of the World Trade Center and landed brain first into a pile of my comics, you'd probably get something like this." Behold.
