Atlas Press originally published this fiercely hysterical graphic novel in 1992 in an edition of 300 copies, now eagerly sought by collectors. In the meantime Grayson Perry has become a world-famous artist and ceramicist.

This larger format re-edition with a new cover is published to coincide with the artist’s retrospective exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the Barbican in London. He won the Turner Prize in 2003.

"When I was 12 or 13 I drew a series of short comic-strip adventures featuring a male hero. When puberty hit me these boy’s own tales became increasingly kinky, involving much cross-dressing and bondage. Sadly, these reports from my young subconscious were lost in the upheavals of adolescence. Twenty years later I drew Cycle of Violence while facing up to becoming a father myself, and once again my imagination became an open wound."
