Black Paradox

Ito (The Liminal Zone) combines macabre horror and absurd humor in his most successfully disturbing long-form work in recent years.

The Liminal Zone

While this latest collection never quite manages to evoke the berserk emotional intensity of his best work, Ito’s knack for crafting psychologically complex tales that veer between creeping dread and surrealistic body horror remains unparalleled.

Deserter: Junji Ito Story Collection

Another exemplary volume from the internationally renowned master storyteller.


Though it lacks the intense, visceral thrill of his best work, the latest manga from prolific creator Ito (Lovesickness) is still a chillingly unpredictable tale of cosmic horror that builds to an apocalyptic, yet strangely hopeful ending.


Ito’s boundless imagination and his skill for evoking dread and visceral terror are on full display in this collection, which is sure to be embraced by his wildly devoted and rapidly growing fanbase.


Ito (Venus in the Blind Spot) is internationally renowned as a master of creeping terror and surrealistically nightmarish imagery, and while this new volume lacks in the former, it raises the bar when it comes to the latter, presenting unforgettable images that range from a gruesome crucifixion to a lascivious tongue lashing a continent-sized groove across the planet. A berserk thrill.

No Longer Human

If the internationally acclaimed master of horror Ito (Smashed: Junji Ito Story Collection) seems at first a strange choice to adapt Dazai’s 1948 novel, his skill for stories mixing existential dread, body horror, and nightmarishly surreal imagery quickly prove him matched to the material. This unsparingly intense vision of life as a journey through hell, reminiscent of Dostoyevsky and Kafka, just might be Ito’s magnum opus.

Ito is one of the few manga artists with total crossover appeal, making this collection an essential addition.
