Description
  • A gift in memory of Peter Ward Britton
  • Two curators who were creating an art exhibit inside the defunct Victorian era prison, the Eastern State Prison in Philadelphia, asked the artists to create a work for the show. This comic book retells three stories by people who have spent time in prison. Cover has a raised image of a prisoner on a black background. This cover is a departure from the comic style cover that these artists usually employ.
