2. In this book there were a lot of stories going on with different main events. The first story was about a guy who got kicked out of his girlfriend’s house, and went to live with his friend for year. He didn’t pay rent or anything he was just a free loader. By the end of that comic he had completely ruined his friend’s house. Next big story was about the blind date, and how rude Loady was being to his date. There are a lot of good stories in this book about Loady and Sinus (his friend). Loady was a big bum, he was rude, and didn’t respect many people. Sinus O’gynus was Loady’s good friend but Loady treated him like crap!
3. The drawings in this book are very detailed, no color though all black and white. The type of media that I think was used was ink or any type of pen. The drawings are real realist, and somehow cartooned. He showed motion very well in his pictures by using different lines and detail. Most of all the drawings where very realist, and had a lot of grudge to them. He didn’t hold back by adding motion and blood and yucky things to the photos, they were very detailed! I don’t believe none of the pictures where distorted but maybe the characters in the book a little. To describe the formal elements and principles, there where all types of lines curved, straight, and zig- zag. For color, there was none used the whole book was white and black, also touching on the textures there was no texture difference on the page. He used space differently in all his images and drawing some had a lot of space and focused on one object, but most where full of quality drawing. He added a lot of motion to his drawing by using line and making the character look like they’re walking or running. And furthermore there wasn’t much rhythm shown or proportion.
4. I think the author’s purpose of writing this book was to show how fun and humorous reading can me. Before reading this book, I would have never decided to pick up a science fiction book off the shelf! Johnny Ryan definitely made this book interesting and funny. He communicated many emotions with the bubbles of action words, and you can also tell the actions through the drawings. Example was when Loady and O’gynus got into when Loady threw the party in his house, making his animals into whores. Loady turned O’gynuses house all upside down! There was a lot of provoking issues all throughout this book with all the different characters. There weren’t really any responses to racist, but a lot towards sexual views! I felt like he told all these different types of stories just because the reader would find it very humorous, not for no serious reason because maybe Ryan wanted a good book out there for people my age and up to enjoy and laugh at.
5. The biggest strengths of this book were the humor, I can say this is the funniest book I have ever read, and I truly liked it. I liked the different characters and what they did to the story. What drew me into picking this book was the title and the cover of the book, something about it made it look really interesting. Also I think some of these weird story are kind of realist in their own way, I think they really happen in real life! The biggest strength that stood out for me was that the book was so interesting, it made me want to read it and never put it down. I actually feel like I could read it again! It stands out because he makes you really visualize what is going on, when I read this book it felt like I was there in my mind watching the whole book replay while I was in the scenes, most books can’t do that for me as a reader. The form and style synchronize well, besides the fact that the book changes stories a couple times confused me a little, but that wasn’t a problem because I still wanted to continue to read it. My first reaction gut filling to this book was it doesn’t look that hard to read, just because the simple fact that the cover also draws you in, and let’s not forget about the title. The cover is very detailed and colorful, making you excited to read it! The artist also included a lot of facial expressions and body language throughout the book.
6. One weakness of this book I think was just the switching out of stories, and going to another one. When I got the book I thought it was all going to be on one story not numerous. It just kind of caught me off guard when I was reading the first story and it was getting so interesting and I wanted it to continue but instead it switched to another story. Another problem I had with this book was the lack of color. Now without the color it still gave me a great visual stand point, but I am a person that loves color! I feel as though it would have made the book more exciting to read, more than it already was! Seeing that the cover of the book is so colorful, I thought the whole book would be like that. Having these two things could have improved the book in my perspective! How reading this book as changed my perspective on this topic is basically having bad friend, you can’t be too nice to them and let them ruin your life just because there’s is not going to well.
7. I would recommend this book to everyone that is around my age it’s a good book to keep you laughing and energized. I would recommend it to children to much cussing and profanity. But I have already been telling a lot of people about this book! People in the age range of 18-30 I think would love this book! I don’t think older people or people younger than the age of 18 should read this book just because of the profanity and all the sexual photos in the book! Maybe people who are just entering college like me and want something to read to boost there mood up, this would be a great book to read. I would pass it along personally to my cousin, best friend, friend, uncle, and even aquatinence. I would quickly respond to someone who wanted me to read this book, just because it looks interesting. None of the book makes me uncomfortable, but the sexual drawings did shock me! This book as increased my interest in this subject matter big time.
8. Other books by Johnny Ryan: Angry youth commix #7, Blecky Yuckerella, Shouldn’t you be working?, Portajohnny, Prison Pit, etc.
9. I would rate this book 5/5.
