Ito’s Fragments of Horror, Gyo Re-Release Coming Next Year From Viz Signature
I’m not a big fan of horror comics, but I’ve been tempted by Junji Ito’s Uzumaki, because that surreal story of a town overtaken by spirals is less gory, more suspenseful and creepy.
So I’m excited to hear that Viz will be bringing out a short story collection from Ito next summer. Fragments of Horror will be published as a deluxe hardcover under the Viz Signature imprint (and I’m glad to see that’s continuing as well). Here’s the publisher’s description:
Fragments of Horror is the brand-new collection of delightfully macabre tales from the celebrated master of Japanese horror. An old wooden mansion that turns on its inhabitants. A dissection class with a most unusual subject. A funeral where the dead are definitely not laid to rest. Ranging from the terrifying to the comedic, from the erotic to the loathsome, these stories showcase Junji Ito’s long-awaited return to the world of horror.
According to Amazon, Viz will also re-release out Ito’s Gyo as a single volume in April 2015.
