    DescriptionPrison Pit is an original graphic novel from the pen of Johnny Ryan, best known for his humor comic Angry Youth Comix. Prison Pit represents a marked departure from AYC or his Blecky Yuckerella weekly comic strip, combining his love for WWE wrestling, Gary Panter s Jimbo comics, and Kentaro Miura s Berserk manga into a brutal showcase of violence, survival and revenge. Imagine a blend of old-fashioned role playing fantasy games like Dungeons & Dragons crossed with contemporary adult video games like Grand Theft Auto, filtered through Ryan s sense of humor. The book begins with C.F. (his full-name would be too horrifying to reveal here) being thrown into the Prison Pit, a barren negative-zone populated by intergalactic, violent monster criminals. In this first volume, C.F. gets into a bloody slorge war (a slorge is a giant slug that excretes a steroid-like drug called fecid that all the monster men are addicted to) with ultraprisoner Rottweiler Herpes and his henchmen Rabies Bloodbath and Assrat. The ensuing bloodbath is an over-the-top, hyperviolent yet hilarious farce worthy of Ryan s inspiration, Kentaro Miura."

    Review quote
    Johnny Ryan s Prison Pit is something I keep coming back to and not just because it s the only comic book I ve ever seen that can actively liven up a party. It s a hilarious, visceral and quick read for really dumb fun, this is pretty much unbeatable. --David Uzumeri"
