To celebrate the completion of one of the great modern masterpieces and it's recent Ulysses-like omnibus collection, we thought three cheers were in order in the form of a big gorgeous silkscreen print done up spiff. Unlike anything published in America, and a huge 180 turn from the humor comics Ryan had made his name on, Prison Pit is an unpretentious, ambitious epic of gore, monsters, homoeroticism, and destruction. Aggressively, unwaveringly single minded in it's nihilism, Ryan's commitment and labor belies the goodwill it takes to produce such a giant "FUCK YOU" at the universe.
