Bold, absurd and all too real, Ebisu Yoshikazu's work feels distinctly underground, almost punk. Many of his works were created for alternative manga magazine Garo in the '70s, forming a bridge between the leftwing counterculture of the '60s and the subculture of the '80s. Angry, awkwardly drawn and funny, the stories in this collection reflect a time of personal, playful and expressionistic creativity.

The Pits of Hell collects eight classic stories by Ebisu Yoshikazu, originally published between 1969 and 1981. The collection features a foreword by Minami Shinbō and an essay by Ryan Holmberg placing Ebisu Yoshikazu and his work into context. Also included is a retrospective essay by Ebisu Yoshikazu in which he offers background on each of the stories.
