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 According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the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!

Affraid of Spirals? I still am...


I bought this Graphic novel because my son said it was about Spirals ( and I am affraid of spirals) he suggested that it may help. I made him read it first to see if I would be able to enjoy it, but when I saw his face after he HAD read it I thought "oh dear, what have I gotten myself into?" Turns out this was one of the most engaging stories I have read in a long while. The artwork is beautifully haunting, the stories all flow together so seamlessly and beautifully the entire experience is creepy and fascinating - one of those things that are so awful you can't look away from them. Junji Ito has definitely earned the title of Horror master in my opinion! I am still affraid of Spirals, but thankfully this is all set in one small town a long way away from my home so I am very ok with this particular Spiral haunted town. It has a little of the flavour of Lovecraft in its themes and in the visual work, so for fans of Lovecraft this may be a winner; I know it was for both my Son and myself. We have since picked up another 2 of his books.

I was consumed by the spiral...


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...
