Alternative comics creator Johnny Ryan promoted his comic strip character ‘Blecky Yuckerella.’ Initially published in the alternative newspaper Portland Mercury, ‘Blecky’ is a second grader known for being smelly, stupid, and gross but with a heart of gold. Fanatgraphics has since published multiple collections of ‘Blecky Yuckerella’ and many other works from Ryan. He is the co-creator of the Nickelodeon TV series Pig Boat Banana Cricket, and his comics have appeared in nearly every issue of Nickelodeon Magazine. Johnny Ryan’s work has also appeared in MAD, LA Weekly, and National Geographic Kids.
