Welcome to the world… or, rather, worlds of Japan’s most darkly inventive and disturbing manga author. A world where bandy-legged sideshow owners parade their cannibal children as living exhibits. A world where hideous young boys gulp down cooking oil like water. Fish that walk on metal legs, girls who mutate and grow like living fungus. Spirals in the air, horrors in the ocean, disembodied heads floating through the skies, a hole that was made for you in the side of a mountain. And above it all, a vast, living star that consumes everything it touches. This is the world of Junji Ito.
