TWO NEW WORKS BY JUNJI ITO COMING IN 2022
The announcements of the live with Sommobuta
In the live STAR VERSUS SOMMOBUTA we have announced the arrival, for next year, of two titles by the beloved master of horror Junji Ito, an author we are never really satisfied with.
Starting from July 2022 we will publish, in the series Umami, two works that are terrifying and fascinating at the same time: the disturbing SENSOR – in which a young woman with flowing hair finds herself entangled in the strange cult of the inhabitants of a remote village – and the frightening GENKAI CHITAI, a collection of short stories focused on a series of strange events that disturb the daily lives of the unfortunate protagonists.
We will reveal more details in the coming months.
Born in Gifu in 1963, Junji Ito he leaves the profession of dental technician to devote himself full-time to comics after winning the “Kazuo Umezz” award in 1987. Numerous animated and live-action films have been drawn from his works, of which Ito himself often takes care of the screenplay. His stroke is, at the same time, realistic and caricatured, as brutal and disturbing as it is elegant and composed. Its main themes are obsessive-compulsive disorders, atavistic fears, the fascination of self-destruction and the deformation of the body (understood not so much as a metaphor of the social corpus as as a physical representation of the subconscious).
