"What will happen to me when I have an eternal dream? The morning after I have a dream that never ends, what will I have become?"
After the year of extreme tension waiting for the publishers to finally churn this out - though I suppose the combination of congealed shark's blood, cursed dream cryst...

An excellent selection of horror manga, Junji Ito's Shiver collects stories that will be new to those who have already read the astounding Uzumaki, the bonkers Gyo, the impish Dissolving Classroom, the affectionate Cat Diary: Yon & Mu and the eclectic Fragments of Horror. Those who have read...

Once again, I'm left in awe both at Junji Ito's formidable artistic talents and his extremely perverse imagination. His stories display a twisted creativity and nightmare logic that most of the modern western Weird Fiction writers can't even begin to display, but which would probably earn him the...

Excellent! Great stories, of course, from a Master, but perhaps most interesting is his commentary at the end of each story. It's always fascinating to get a glimpse into how a great story-teller weaves tales from mundane nothings. My favorite stories were Hanging Blimp, then Honored Ancestors, T...

Fantastic, as I would expect Junji Ito to be. Great existential horror with a pragmatic style of storytelling. Beautiful art that is a testament to Ito’s natural talent. Cool commentary that follows each story and gets into how he came up with his ideas. I love Shiver. Highly recommended.

Oh my god. I'm not usually squeamish about things that aren't egg whites or drool (hey, we've all got issues), but now thanks to this book I will fear small holes, pimples, and giant heads. Thanks, Junji Ito!
(Seriously, DO NOT READ if you have a weak stomach!)

Fantastic collection of short stories hand-picked by Ito himself! Fans will not be disappointed.
1. Used Record - A mythical record of a scat recording made from the afterlife has people killing to get their hands on it. An understated story with some classic Ito moments. (4/5)
2. Shiver - This is...

I have read several of Junji Ito's books by now and I have to admit this collection it not my favorite. If you go into this already being a Ito like me, you'll probably enjoy it. However if this is your first reading his work you might want to start with 'Fragments of Horror' or 'Uzamaki'

This is a very solid collection of Junji Ito's work. Aside from one story, I hadn't seen any of these before. Ito included a couple of pages of commentary and notes after each story, which was great of him. The commentary is always short, but insightful. The most interesting thing I learned from...
