Johnny Ryan

FATCOP

On sale date: March 5, 2024

Upholding crime and corruption, one fast food joint at a time.

FATCOP never passes up a possible grift, a chance to use excessive force, or a pit stop at any chain restaurant he passes. He chafes when forced to take a new partner, Pete Rick, to keep him on the up and up. Even when he lucks into a heroic deed, he manages to do so repulsively. But when FATCOP uncovers a child slave ring operating out of the local Trader Joe's, he may have met his match on the reprehensibility scale. If he's not careful, it might be a transformative experience that causes him to reconsider his role as a loving partner and father. Well, up to a point, anyway — sometimes a fat cop is just a FATCOP.

Johnny Ryan returns to his lowbrow humor roots following his cult classic and violent fantasy series, Prison Pit. Ping-ponging his antihero through an ever-escalating and cascading series of violent, scatological, and wildly imaginative absurdities (most but not all of FATCOP's own making), Ryan's brilliance as a visual and verbal gag writer shines on every page of this master class in physical humor and comics storytelling. FATCOP is as hilarious as it is profane, and a welcome return to long-form comics by the cartoonist and animation veteran Johnny Ryan.

Praise

"A psychotic and brilliant book. Impossible to pigeonhole, always a step ahead of the reader, its intellectual reach goes well beyond outrageousness and toward the agony of modern America ... and its desire for self- destruction. Fatcop is a murder mystery story engined by pure id, crafted by a comics master." — Sammy Harkham (Blood of the Virgin)

"Ryan brings his mixture of scatology, sex, and billingsgate to an acme of noxious hilarity." — Booklist

"Ryan's work is smart, crammed with ideas, and so funny it will melt your retinas." — Chicago Reader
