Anything ever written or illustrated by this guy is absolutely amazing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junji_Ito

Gyo - http://www.mangareader.net/gyo

Uzumaki - http://read.mangashare.com/Uzumaki/

Tomie - http://manga.animea.net/tomie.html

Those are just a few examples.



I realize I shouldn't be posting scans by other groups, but man, Itō Junji illustrates and does dialogue better than any other horror Mangaka I've ever read. This stuff is terrifying, and I love it.

I'm not much of a fan for horror or tragedy but I looked up the manga you mentioned and I find them interesting, especially Uzumaki. I read some of the reviews and they were mostly positive. Are they really that good? Question

I love tragedy... But I think I've never read horror manga before. Well, maybe Berserk gets a bit of the creepy feeling...
Need to read these.

I personally think they're excellent. I mean, if you're not into being creeped out then I'd probably avoid them, but if you are then the stories and art work kind of pull you in. If you've read some of High School of The Dead and didn't mind the gore or the psychological aspects, all three of those Manga take it a step further and really push you in a direction you'd rather not travel towards, but you can't help pushing further into it.
