More Ryans than you can shake a stick at! [Nov. 10th, 2005|10:00 pm]
The Ryans


Greetings from India!
I have earned the "E" in my name and moved to the East, Metro-Mumbai, to be exact.
The land where 'our people' are referred to as "Reeyon" At least it's not like in Korea, where the 'R' and 'L' confusion quickly earns every Ryan the nickname "Lion"
There are a lot of Ryans out there, and we've only named a few. Luckily there are sites like Are you Ryan? to fill in the gap of non-cartooning Ryans.

But even in the field of comics, we've only scratched the surface. There are artists like Johnny Ryan , who due to their last-name status are known as "half bloods". There are middle namers like Zach Ryan Vandezande. We even have Bryans, who get their own little group, known as B-sides. (No, Brians don't count.)

And of course, we musn't forget the Ryans that are on the other side of the pen. The fictional Ryans. The latest Ryan of the month is Ryan Beckwith, a character from Scary Go Round

Do you know any other comics that have Ryans as characters? Post a link! And because I think the world needs more Ryans, I issue a challenge. If anyone introduces a NEW recurring character named Ryan to your comic, I will dub you an 'honorary ryan" and give you a virtual high five.

Hm, I'll definitely have to create a character named Ryan for my comic, now. I was going to name a character 'Brian' but now I'll be changing that!

more ryan

Clayton Ryan, another half-breed and comic
Though I prefer 'cousin', as it's quite possible that the having the last name "Ryan" is more of a pre-destined mantle then having the first name "Ryan". ;-)

Being almost the Ryan-Reversal of "Ryan Claytor" listed on your site, I'm sure if we two were to meet and shake hands, we would erase each other in a bust of soundless light.

Re: more ryan

Greetings, Mr. Ryan!
You may be our cousin, but you are still our Brother. Brothers in Ryandom.

And I salute you.

Well, you could always get in touch with Brian Fies (Mom's Cancer), Brian Clevinger (8-Bit Theater) and Brian Fukushima (Bottomless Pop) and start The Brians.

And then we could have Ryans vs Brians flame wars. It'd be awesome.

Hey, Joe Manely from web comics nation told me to check your site out. I happen to be a Ryan comic artist which stars in my own comics. So I guess I do have a Ryan character but it's me. You can see my stuff at www.webcomicsnation.com/slackmatic
Love the Ryan site, we shall rule the world.

That is truly excellent! I shall add your name to the illustrious list of Ryans next time I update the site, and shall add your site to the illustrious list of comics I've got to read!
