The Scream

Of his famous painting, Edvard Munch said “I stopped and looked out over the fjord — the sun was setting, and the clouds turning blood red. I sensed a scream passing through nature; it seemed to me that I heard the scream. I painted this picture, painted the clouds as actual blood. The color shrieked. This became The Scream.” (WP) Above: A Belfast yell with clouds of “peace” line green.
For a 1993 use of the actual Munch painting, see Give Them That Screamin’ Feeling!

Between The Crosses

For the four panels on the right, see Ulsters Brave.
