Prison Pit, Vol. 3

Availability: Ready to download

Prison Pit blends Angry Youth Comix creator Johnny Ryan’s fascination with WWE wrestling, grindhouse cinema, first person action video games, Gary Panter’s Jimbo comics, and Kentaro Miura’s “Berserk” manga into a brutal and often hilarious showcase of violence like no other comic book ever created. Even the lead character’s name, which is only one letter away from “Canniba Prison Pit blends Angry Youth Comix creator Johnny Ryan’s fascination with WWE wrestling, grindhouse cinema, first person action video games, Gary Panter’s Jimbo comics, and Kentaro Miura’s “Berserk” manga into a brutal and often hilarious showcase of violence like no other comic book ever created. Even the lead character’s name, which is only one letter away from “Cannibal Duckface” (hint: “Cannibal” is correct) is unprintable. Prison Pit is so deranged and twisted that even the author’s plot description, while admirably reflecting the spirit of the book, has to be edited into a sea of asterisks in order to be bearable to normal human beings: “A mysterious new a**hole has descended into the Prison Pit. He’s looking for Cannibal F***face and he wants revenge. Revenge for what? Probably for some f***ed up evil s***. But before he can get his hands on the CanMan he’s got to battle his way through some pretty vicious motherf***ers. S***’s about to get real.” Well, yes, exactly.

    I was in the mall today and saw this and #2 in a store and thought, "what the hell? Why buy the cow when the milk is free?" So I stood there and read both of them. Pretty asinine, gross stuff, like playing with He-Man action figures meets Fists of the North Star/Dragonball. Fun to look at but not worth 12 bucks.

    Finally starting to click with me. Maybe it's like they say. You need 3 volumes to get comfortable with the characters and learn the minutiae of their motivations.......naaaaaaaaa.

    Well I have persisted and am now half way through this weird thing. They are very quick to read despite what the pagination suggests, lots of big pictures and little dialogue, but much, much grossness. I think if I was 15 I may enjoy it more. Maybe. Maybe not. Anyway more of the same really.

    When I read the first volume of Prison Pit, I lurved it so hard for how horrible it was that I immediately went out and got the second volume of Prison Pit, as if somehow that initial blast of laughter, shock and revulsion could be replicated -- sort of like when I was 15 and sitting in my friend Adam Comardo's bedroom and he'd just finished playing me Cannibal Corpse's Tomb of the Mutilated and I was still sitting there in pained confusion and then he said, "Okay, now check out Butchered at Bir When I read the first volume of Prison Pit, I lurved it so hard for how horrible it was that I immediately went out and got the second volume of Prison Pit, as if somehow that initial blast of laughter, shock and revulsion could be replicated -- sort of like when I was 15 and sitting in my friend Adam Comardo's bedroom and he'd just finished playing me Cannibal Corpse's Tomb of the Mutilated and I was still sitting there in pained confusion and then he said, "Okay, now check out Butchered at Birth." If there's anything to be appreciated about Prison Pit at all, it's that you can walk away from it for a good six months and come back when the next volume comes out -- say, when you find it on the shelf next to Will Eisner and Walt Kelly at your local university research library because OBVIOUSLY SOMEONE THAT WORKS THERE IS INSANE -- and rest assured that it will still be as awful, heinous, stupid and sophmorically depraved as it was the last time you read it. Like, you know a book is messed up when it makes it hurt when you pee. That's all I'm saying.

    The arch enemy of the main character shows up in the Prison Pit spoiling for a fight. He comes across some bad hombres and the usual (I'm assuming you've read the previous two books and know what to expect) gore-fest ensues. I thought the fight-scenes were a little crazier than before with characters being absorbed by other characters and then transforming into other characters - it all got a bit hard to follow.

He comes across some bad hombres and the usual (I'm assuming you've read the previous two books and know what to expect) gore-fest ensues. I thought the fight-scenes were a little crazier than before with characters being absorbed by other characters and then transforming into other characters - it all got a bit hard to follow. Then the main character's story resumes where his new underground location leads him to a strange object wherein monks of some sort have his arm and more fighting ensues. The book was as imaginative as the other two books, and the series as a whole comes across as basically a more nasty version of Jim Woodring's Unifactor world. That said it wasn't as funny as the other two books though I like the lack of any real plot or character development by Johnny Ryan (unless the quest to get his arm back is a plot in utero?). "Book Three" is still good fun and daffy as all hell, but the elongated fight scenes, while mind bending, aren't enough to sustain the series so hopefully Ryan will figure out a way in the next book to make this series seem fresh as the first book was.

    Random acts of meaningless, unprovoked violence--pure sociopathology. Why not 5 stars then? The sadism is starting to feel restrained.

    Johnny Ryan is a seriously twisted dude. Entertaining, gruesome, crude stories about nightmare monsters killing each other and other stuff in really gross, weird fashions. Great for teenage boys? Some part of me never wants to read any of this ever again and yet I keep coming back and reading the next volume, because there is something kind of funny about it. Exactly what, I'm not sure. I don't think I want to know. Johnny Ryan is a seriously twisted dude.

    With each book in the Prison Pit series, we are entering the zone of diminishing returns. Great fun in all its playful gore still, but not the punch-in-the-face that Book One was.

    I don't read many graphic novels. My brother turned me on to this one. Insanely psychedelic and brutal even in black-and-white. I don't read many graphic novels. My brother turned me on to this one. Insanely psychedelic and brutal even in black-and-white.
