Review by Kathy LaFollett

In their October 6 issue, Rolling Stone Magazine named Johnny Ryan "2005 Hot Cartoonist".

As an aficionado of MAD Magazine, this does not come as a surprise. I've seen his work add to the chutzpah of MAD Magazine and I can attest to the fact he's neither a drug addict nor a sociopath; but for reasons of National Security we really cannot comment further on the subject.

AYC Number 9 delivers Johnny's consistent merry-go-round of impossible folk such as Loady McGee and Blecky Yuckerella. Personally I think Blecky Yuckerella COULD be the next Barbie if Mattel would get off their ass and see the potential of a polar-speak product line that spits in the face and smashes the kneecaps of America's sick obsessive nature towards Patriarchal tendencies.

Johnny Ryan takes us on a long, long, PAINFULLY long roundabout that resembles a snake eating its own ass. Actually it's probably all a metaphor for a snake eating its own ass. Johnny likes those high-faluten fancy shmancy word things.

There's a reason why Mr. Ryan is 2005's Hottest Cartoonist. So check your predisposition towards the extreme, expectations towards acceptable spelling skills, and closed minded assumptions of right and ungodly at the door.

Pick up a copy of AYC #9 and forget everything you thought you knew about the terms "potty-mouth", "shit-disturber", and "antidisestablishmentarianism".

Mr. Johnny Ryan wrote us a new dictionary.
