Tony Millionaire and Johnny Ryan: Double book launch and signing

Family Bookstore is pleased to host the launch of two new books from Fantagraphics Books:

Billy Hazelnuts and the Crazy Bird Tony Millionaire
Prison Pit vol 2 by Johnny Ryan

"In this follow-up to Billy Hazelnuts (2006), Millionaire carries on the sublime childlike flair that is a far cry from the sweet sense of innocence often ascribed to wee ones. ... No one rides the edge between charming and demented quite like Maakies cartoonist Millionaire, and he’s in hilariously fine form here." – Ian Chipman, Booklist

2009's Prison Pit was an unadulterated smash hit upon its release in 2009, and the balls-to-the-wall series returns with more action and mayhem like only Johnny Ryan can deliver . Prison Pit blends Ryan’s fascination with WWE wrestling, grindhouse cinema, first person action video games, Gary Panter’s “Jimbo” comics, and Kentaro Miura’s “Berserk” Manga into a brutal and often hilarious showcase of violence like no other comic book ever created.

"Generally speaking, [Johnny Ryan's] comics are really dumb & infantile, and prove beyond a doubt that chemical pollution, television, video games, pop music, etc. is making us all stupider by the minute..." – R. Crumb
