Staff Reviews


Junji Ito might be the most creative horror writer I have ever encountered. His genius is shown through how he can write such compelling horror all-around one little symbol you’d never consider terrifying, the spiral. A small, isolated town discovers the corrupting and horrifying nature of this symbol as the town spirals into horror. His creativity and awesome story has stuck with me for years and I think every horror enthusiast, even if you aren’t into manga, should read this!
