Staff Reviews


Broadly speaking, I don't like Manga (sorry, not sorry), though Junji Ito has proven to be the exception. His tales are never dull, at times retch-inducing, and always ghastly. What more could a girl ask for??

— From Dean

Description


A best-of story selection by the master of horror manga.

This volume includes nine of Junji Ito’s best short stories, as selected by the author himself and presented with accompanying notes and commentary. 

An arm peppered with tiny holes dangles from a sick girl’s window… After an idol hangs herself, balloons bearing the faces of their destined victims appear in the sky… An amateur film crew hires an extremely individualistic fashion model and faces a real bloody ending… An offering of nine fresh nightmares for the delectation of horror fans.
