Getting a little tired of zombies and walkers? Maybe you want something different to supplement your need for scream? Viz Media may well have the answer to your dark desires.
Just in time for Halloween, the San Francisco-based company has released Junji Ito’s masterpiece of dark horror, Uzumaki, in a Deluxe Edition. The three-in-one volume hardcover edition, which contains 12 pages of new full-color interior artwork, is now available under the Viz Signature imprint.
Uzumaki’s setting is the small seaside town of Kurouzu-cho, which is haunted by a mysterious spiral pattern that shows up in everything and on everyone. The town is caught up in a never-ending maelstrom of madness that threatens to engulf them all. It’s a barn-burner you wouldn’t want to miss, and a worthy addition to anyone’s manga collection, but especially for fans of Ito, whose works include the Tomie series of horror manga.
Watch for a review of the Uzumaki Deluxe Edition to splash its way across these gory pages soon. Until then, pleasant nightmares.
