FUC_ __U, _SS __LE: Blecky Yuckerella Vol. 4

Review: "I’ll admit that Blecky Yuckerella isn’t a comic for everyone, and that Johnny Ryan’s sense of humour is definitely an acquired taste. However, if you’ve got a sick sense of humour, like I have, you will laugh your ass off non-stop, as you read this hilarious collection from cover to cover. I loved it so much that I actually contacted Johnny Ryan by email and purchased the original artwork for the very last Blecky strip from him. If that’s not a seal of approval, I don’t know what is!" – Edward Kaye, Hypergeek

Special Exits [Pre-Order]

Scene/Profile: At Comic Book Resources, Josie Campbell reports from Joyce Farmer's recent appearance at Skylight Books: "Farmer spoke frankly about the detrimental treatment her stepmother received while in a nursing home, culminating in her falling out of bed due to the orderlies' negligence. 'They killed her,' said Farmer. 'You drop an eighty-six year old person three feet to a concrete floor, it's going to end their life.' Despite its dark tones and serious subject matter, Farmer emphasized the important role humor played in the novel and in her parent's lives. 'I wanted to keep humor in the book,' said Farmer. 'I had a lot of fun in there, a lot of funny stories. I tried to make it an honest book, and show the universal in the daily minutia.'" [Edited to reflect a corrected byline.]
