Junji Ito returns to horror with his new book Fragments of Horror

Junji Ito (Gyo, Uzumaki) returns to horror after eight years with his new book Fragments of Horror, which is a brand-new collection of delightfully macabre tales from the celebrated master of Japanese horror.

Featured within the book are a tale of an old wooden mansion that turns on its inhabitants. A dissection class with a most unusual subject. A funeral where the dead are definitely not laid to rest. Ranging from the terrifying to the comedic, from the erotic to the loathsome, these stories showcase Junji Ito’s mastery of the genre.

“A long anticipated new offering of bizarre and disturbing short stories from the unique mind of Junji Ito awaits readers next summer,” says Leyla Aker, Senior Vice President, Publishing. “Ito adeptly creates scenarios that are at once surreal, unsettling, and often terrifying, and Fragments of Horror is sure to become a must-read for true horror aficionados and manga fans familiar with his prior works like Gyo and Uzumaki. We look forward to new as well as existing manga fans and readers discovering this potent forthcoming release!”

Manga creator Junji Ito made his professional debut in 1987 and since then has gone on to be recognized as one of the greatest contemporary artists working in the horror genre. His critically acclaimed titles include Tomie and Uzumaki, which also were adapted into critically praised live-action films, as well as Gyo, which was adapted into an animated feature film. The Uzumaki and Gyo manga editions are both published in English by VIZ Media in deluxe hardcover editions available under the VIZ Signature imprint. Ito’s influences include classic horror manga artists Kazuo Umezu and Hideshi Hino, as well as authors Yasutaka Tsutsui and H.P. Lovecraft.
