JOHNNY RYAN CRASHES and BURNS
@ Secret Headquarters
Friday September 15th, 8pm-10pm
Secret Headquarters is pleased to announce an art
opening with the lovely and talented JOHNNY RYAN.
Johnny first developed his hilarious drawings in the
self-published title Angry Youth Comix. Now published
by Fantagraphics Books, Ryan’s AYC has become the
international bastion of lowbrow humor cartooning.
Ryan’s utterly unpretentious taboo-tackling is an
infectious bombardment of political incorrectness.

Johnny’s unmistakable and humorous drawings have
appeared in MAD, LA Weekly, National Geographic Kids,
Hustler, Vice Magazine, Cool & Strange Music, The
Stranger, and elsewhere. His artwork appears in nearly
every issue of Nickelodeon magazine, wherein he has
also collaborated with acclaimed artist Dave Cooper
under the pen name “Hector Mumbly”. The two also
collaborated on a “Wonder Woman vs. Super Girl” story
for the DC Comics anthology Bizarro. Ryan has also
collaborated with Peter Bagge in both AYC and Bagge’s
Hate Annual, in addition to penciling and inking two
stories for his DC series Sweatshop. In addition
Johnny has done work for clients such as Nobleworks
greetings cards, Rhino Records, and FOX television.
Ryan’s work has earned multiple Ignatz, Harvey, and
Eisner award nominations as well as a spot on Rolling
Stone’s 2005 “Hot List.”
Secret Headquarters will feature Ryan’s one of a kind
original works of art through October 15th, 2006.
