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.
• We haven't had a chance to listen to this ourselves yet, but we are told that British comedy genius and known Fantagraphics fan Graham Linehan (Big Train, The IT Crowd, Father Ted) sings our praises in this interview with The Sound of Young America

Mike Baehr, Janice Headley and I are headed down Friday for this weekend's Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco, and we will be bringing along about 150 comics and books for you to browse and get signed all weekend long by our amazing line-up of attending authors:
11AM Johnny Ryan
11AM Megan Kelso & Kevin Huizenga
Meanwhile, Jordan Crane, Esther Pearl Watson, Chris Ware (yes, Chris Ware!), and others will also be appearing at the show. How can you miss it? It runs 11 to 7 Saturday and 11 to 6 Sunday.
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.
