Ugly

A couple of months ago I really got into reading Johnny Ryan's Angry Youth Comix (which, I HIGHLY recommend, it's been a long time since I've laughed so much reading comix). As a result I wrote a bunch of comics with knives in them and stabbing stuff. A bunch of these comics had me stabbing myself. It was a weird time for me. I might draw a couple more of them, though, probably not along this pathetic self loathing tract.

I've heard of Johnny Ryan but I've never read his stuff. If it inspired you to draw this, I should definitely check him out. Thanks for the recommendation.

haha sweet colors man! and I've read the 'comic book holocaust' by johnny ryan, and for some reason I really don't like that guy! I love how he draws, but it really got to be too much for me! I haven't read any of his other stuff, maybe the one i have is just way over the top or something.

Bottom line, I would take a Jason Bradshaw comic over a Johnny Ryan comic any day

Haha, yeah, Johhny Ryan is easy to hate! It's funny, I'm almost ashamed of liking it... because I can't even intellectually justify why I find it funny - because it's got horrible, horrible stuff in it - but I do.

His Angry Youth stuff, anyway. I haven't read enough of his more recent stuff to judge...
