|Junji Ito, the Japanese master of surreal horror, is one mangaka to whom we must pay our proper due. This 3-volume set is a hardcover edition of Uzumaki, the epic story of a small town ensnared in a supernatural curse revolving around spirals. From this simple geometric motif, Ito draws out unspeakable hells for his hypnotized protagonists.|
If this is your first introduction to Junji Ito (welcome to the cult!), you can’t get a better gate into Ito’s work than this magnum opus. Uzumaki is also in the process of being adapted into a short anime series which will premiere on Adult Swim’s Toonami in 2020.
