Welcome to the Ito-verse of cosmic horror.

MoreLess about Junji Ito

Junji Ito seamlessly weaves the unknowable into cosmic horrors that exceed the boundaries of manga. His works subvert the genre by bending, twisting, and blending it far beyond the familiar, resulting in the greatest chilling, thrilling, and grotesquely horrific storytelling of our time. Welcome to the Ito-verse.

Four-time Eisner Award-winning creator Junji Ito made his professional manga debut in 1987, and since then has gone on to be recognized as one of the greatest contemporary artists working in the horror genre. His titles include Tomie and Uzumaki, which have been adapted into live-action films; Gyo, which was adapted into an animated film; and his books Black Paradox, Deserter, Fragments of Horror, Frankenstein, Lovesickness, No Longer Human, Remina, Sensor, Shiver, Smashed, The Liminal Zone, and Venus in the Blind Spot, all of which are available from VIZ Media.

Stitches

A tumor shaped like a man’s face slowly moves across a woman’s body. The sea shoots glowing balls into the sky, much to the distress of beachgoers. And a girl dressed up for a holiday has no eyes, no nose, nothing—her face is a total blank.

Hirokatsu Kihara pens true stories of unsolved mysteries, stitched together with page after page of Junji Ito’s original illustrations in this collection of nine eerie tales and a bonus manga story.
