Over the last year I've become a big fan of Junji Ito's work. It all started when my buddy Jeremy loaned me Ito's Uzumaki, which is fantastic. Just recently I read GYO and it was a blast. It begins when a teenage couple on vacation begin smelling something horrible and see a strange creature that they can't manage to get a good look at. The creature turns out to be a fish with legs. And that is just the tip of the iceberg for weird in this story.

Later the boyfriend manages to smash the thing behind a dresser.
I like this sequence.
It's only 2 volumes and you also get 2 short stories in volume 2 one of which is particularly fantastic. I know there are some people who are horror fans and are attracted to anything in that genera. I'm not one of those people, but I do like good comics and that's what this is.
