If you are a fan of horror, even if comics/manga aren't your thing (which they aren't mine) seriously, if you are unaware of Ito's work, you need to by this affordable book which contains the whole series of Uzumaki, sit down when you got some free time to yourself and really engulf yourself in this bizarre, Horrifying, unforgettable tale. Absolutely great!
Ito does an amazing job turning something as simple as a spiral into something horrifying.
I bought this and Gyo at the same time and I felt Uzumaki was a far better story with more to it than just grotesque imagery.
Uzumaki is a fantastic horror manga. This book is a perfect gift for any teenager or adult. Although it is a horror manga, the art is so striking and the plot so riveting that anyone can enjoy it, not only horror fans.
The one caveat is that clearly this story was originally published episodically. Many collected comics read so much better when published in one volume (you can finally see the larger story arc). With this one though I suspect it may have worked better when released one at a time, with space given between the stories and jumps. If you you read it more like a collection of short stories than a novel you will not be disappointed though.
5 stars for the manga, 4 stars for amazon for not including any packing material in the shipping box like they normally do to prevent damage, especially with these kind of deluxe hardcovers, thus it came with a slightly bent corner, but overall in good shape. Maybe because of the cheaper price it didn't quality for high quality treatment, but it IS high quality and should be treated as such.

The art is fantastic. I don’t care for most manga art, but I particularly enjoyed Ito’s work in this.Read more
