The web image doesnt do justice to the cover of this collection of Ito's ghoulish and shocking short horror manga, his first in eight years. The dust jacket incorporates the single best use of spot varnish that we've ever come across. When you stare at the cover head on, it appears as it does online, but as you lift it up and the light glances it at various angles, a series of ghostly images dance across the cover that fleetingly depict horrific hallucinations -- doubtless those that the cover's central figure -- a clear homage to Munch's "The Scream" -- is helplessly experiencing. As for the material this cover so cleverly and appropriately contains: the eight pieces here have all been penned since 2006. All but the first tale -- a brief eight-pager -- run thirty pages or more. The stories range from a classic haunted house tale, to a high school biology class gone horribly wrong, to erotic/horrific metamorphoses and plenty more creepiness from the creator of the classics Uzumaki and Gyo.
