About the Book
Being Mr. Skin: 20 Years of Nip Slips, Cheek Peeks, and Fast-Forwarding to the Good Parts humorously details the rise of the unlikely pop culture icon and creator of one of the first-ever commercially successful websites, Jim "Mr. Skin" McBride, made (in?)famous by the likes of Howard Stern, the film Knocked Up and TV shows such as Saturday Night Live and Family Guy.
Comic strips written by Mathew and illustrated by Eisner Award-nominated underground comix mainstay and co-creator of Nickelodeon's Pig Goat Banana Cricket Johnny Ryan also appear in this devil-may-care and rambunctious chronicle of one kooky's guy's unique talent for memorizing celebrity nudity into an internet media empire. Foreword by Adam Corolla.
