Every week I look forward to hearing what new, strange tidbit is unearthed about Giant Bomb's most American hero Dan Ryckert, especially his food stories. Seriously, let's get a premium stream going where we feed him horrors like house salads. Anyways, the one story about him making "egg whites" really affected me, to the point that I had to draw a little comic about it:

No Caption Provided

I have another comic sketched out too--hint: shoebox surprises--so I'll update this thread with it too once I get around to inking and coloring, which is the slower process. I welcome others to share their own Dan drawings too!

Anyways, thanks for looking! And Dan, if you're reading this, thanks for being you!

EDIT #1, another comic:

No Caption Provided

EDIT #2, based on Dan's scary realization that he could eat 100% biodegradable cutlery made from corn and potato starch. Not that he should, of course.

I like how he sleeps on a floor mattress and has chipped walls but has a clean chef's uniform.

Great job! The term egg whites has always confounded me because they are transparent uncooked and why would you ever just use one part of the egg?

I've had vague 'fantasies' of living a dishwashing free life and finally Dan has become a leading example for all of us.

I hope Dan is a good sport about humiliation but I fear the 'in-jokes' might stick too well (Brad). I guess I'm saying "Don't be a jerk".

My only criticism is that it's not clear that he cracked the eggs and poured them down the sink.

That story of his still confounds me.

Great work on the strip, duder. Dan is full of odd surprises like this.

It just needs something mentioning egg whites somewhere and you got yourself a classic for the ages.

I could even imagine seeing it in a newspaper.

I hope the shoebox comic goes after the fact he didn't use the cover of the shoebox.

That really needed more attention.

@pabba: This is amazing! The tear is so perfect! You should add that to the initial post so that people see it without having to look through the thread. Not everyone is going to have the patience to do that.

I thought the title said Dan Ryckert Food CRIMES.

But this is just as good as what I thought this was going to be.

Considering that Dan volunteers most of this stuff and revels in the ridiculousness when he's telling it, I don't think there's anything to worry about.

I'm going to agree that Dan very obviously has no shame. If he did, he would not be sharing those stories. He does seem to get a kick out of sharing these anecdotes where he is either completely oblivious or just very...nontraditional.

Exactly. He even sounds totally willing to try new stuff. Didn't he suggest the premium stream where Brad and Drew feed him new foods? They seem like they usually know what they're talking about when it comes to food, so that might be pretty interesting for the audience and tasty for Dan.

Okay cool, totally validated. Ignore my comment.

Also, wasn't that Butt Tumblr thing mentioned on an E3 Bombcast? Was Dan a guest on an episode? That seemed so familiar.

@hatking: I thought I saw him wearing them when battling Jeff in Street Fighter II, so maybe when he's on the couch and far from the TV screens he needs his bi-focals. I like drawing them on him. Rorie and Vinny sometimes wear glasses too, as does Brad I believe.

Haha... Totally cool, I wasn't trying to be rude or anything. He probably just wears contacts most of the time, seems like most people do these days anyway. The art is super charming, and I hope you continue doing this stuff. Hopefully they give you more fuel each week. : )

The mattress on the floor in the background of that first comic was enough for me, that's perfect and pretty close to how I imagine his descriptions. This is great work, man!

@beardyduck: Thanks man, I listened to this week's bombcast but I must have been distracted clicking on dudes during this story.

Like everyone else, after the initial shock of Dan's utter Midwestern-ness wore off, I'm totally excited to see more Dan content.

Expertly produced by Jason and Drew of course

They really need to get another can of surströmming, just to let Dan sample its wonders.

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I already have a third comic idea--it's about FORKS--so I'll sketch that one out later today, probably as I watch UPF.

Now you're just trying to kill the poor guy.

I am 100% on board with this idea...just have paramedics nearby.

@pabba: I'd say you need to make a comic about Dan's dental story, from his The Last of Us stream last night, but I don't need more nightmares. Experiencing it in an audio form was bad enough.

@pabba: He was streaming from home, seemed kinda spur of the moment, so I don't think he necessarily was gonna archive it? I'm not sure I saw anybody ask him. There might be an archive on Twitch? He did say that he might try to share the story on the Bombcast if it came up for some reason. It's kind of not a fun story! On top of the super not cool part, he mentioned that like, a ton of his teeth have crowns, and a couple have been pulled and replaced with artificial teeth. And that he's been pretty close to having diabetes according to his doctor, based on blood sugar or whatevs.
