A masterpiece of horror manga, now available in a deluxe hardcover edition!
Kurôzu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people's bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi's father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurôzu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!

Comments about Uzumaki (3-in-1, Deluxe Edition):
I read this after hearing the author/artist behind it was going to work on the now cancelled Silent Hills..
Being a big fan of the Silent Hill games I really connected to this surreal nightmare story. Best feeling I've had with a story since those games.
Now I've already read all his other stuff that I can get my hands on...
