Staff Reviews


Ito is an iconic name in the world of horror for a reason, and Uzumaki is
one of the masterpieces that points to why. The small, foggy coastal town
of Kurouzu-cho is cursed not by any particular entity or thing, but the hypnotic pattern of the spiral (uzumaki). Fittingly, the town spirals into madness as the curse of the uzumaki takes hold of every living being. With jaw-droppingly detailed and horrifying ink illustrations, and perfectly slow-paced descent into the territory of cosmic horrors beyond anyone’s comprehension, Uzumaki is a powerful and haunting tale that has stayed with me ever since that first read.
