Staff Reviews


Get ready for a bizarre journey through a town plagued by spirals. They're everywhere and they're making the townspeople go mad in some shockingly grotesque ways. Absolute nightmare fuel, Uzumaki will have you on the edge of your seat, thinking "is Junji Ito okay?"

— Kasey

Junji Ito at his best — this is his masterpiece and rightfully so with the way he has us all fall prey to the mesmerizing influence of the spiral and all its dreadful horror. It’s an obsession that quickly escalates in how strange and eerie it all is. A haunting of a town and its inhabitants and the way they are cursed, contaminated, infested, and possessed by the spiral.
