Rue Morgue #39: Junji Ito

I wrote a feature-length profile of horror manga master Junji Ito in this issue. If I had to pick the single greatest creator of horror comics in the world today—and probably of all time—I’d pick Ito. His “Uzumaki” series is peerless, and his short “The Enigma of Amigara Fault” is basically everything I’d ever want my short horror comics to be.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to interview Ito for the piece. Something to shoot for in the future, I guess.
