FRANKENSTEIN: JUNJI ITO STORY COLLECTION

Story and Art by Junji Ito

Rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens · Debuts Fall 2018

The master of horror manga bends all his skill into bringing the anguished and solitary monster, and the more loathsome beast who created him, to life with the brilliantly detailed chiaroscuro he is known for. Also included is the Oshikiri story cycle – a high school student who lives in a decaying mansion connected to a haunted parallel world. Uncanny doppelgangers, unfortunately murdered friends, and a whole lot more are in store for him.
