Gyo by Junji Ito
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Junji Ito is a MASTER of B-level gross-out horror. Of course, this is manga, and extremely simple in characterization, but that DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL.
We go from a fish -- with legs -- and a horrible stink freaking out a young couple... all the way to THE END OF THE WORLD.
Yep. Two volumes. Gross-out-horror. Over-the-top. FREAKISHLY delightful.
You remember those classic B-Movie horrors from the fifties? Do you wish you could forget them? Or how about if you could kick all the censors out the door and take any particular nasty idea and run with it, leaving no perversity unexplored, until all you have is a farting, walking mass of the undead controlled by *spoiler* *spoiler* *spoiler*.
A perfect halloween gross-out read.
