    Uzumaki.. I'm enjoying it. For some reason I'm finding the horrifying bits sort of funny... something to do with the pacing, they way they're led up to, I think.

    Junji Ito is quite something. They've actually made a movie out of Uzumaki, but I haven't gotten around watching it yet, but I heard it's quite good (for a lesser known horror movie, at least).

    I can't recommend "The Enigma of Amigara Fault" enough, it's maybe my favorite story by Junji Ito. Also "Long Dream" or Nagai Yume as it's called in Japanese is brilliant. But yeah, he's pretty brilliant at creating weird, out-of-place stories that manage to unsettle me. And well, sometimes maybe laugh a bit.

    Cool, I'll look them up when I'm finished this. The inhabitants of Kurôzu-cho seem to take all the crazy shit happening for granted, multiple deaths and unexplainable phenomenon are shrugged off :) "Katayama just turned into a giant snail, OH WELL, just get on with it."

    I've started to get into The Goon yesterday and read issue 40#. Man, good stuff but I think I'm missing out. People who read the comics said that I should start on the first issue or 34#. Which one's better?

    Battle Royale was to much for me,in one scene the main negative character fights a good kid,and suddenly they find KI within them and it becomes dragon ball z..i was like wtf is this shit.. Stopped and went to wiki to read rest of the plot.

    Just found out about great horror manga,I AM HERO! It got some really important manga awards in japan i think,it starts really slowly..but then when it gets serious it keeps you on edge of your seat. Its still ongoing series,which started in 2009.

    From the same author,i just started reading Boy On The Run,its about 26 "loser" who wants to become a boxer or something,it started quite interesting and funny lol.

    Bought that on a lark a few years back. The biographical bit was melancholy, but the comics are jammin. I like the idiosyncratic powers that he gives to his characters. The bombast and changing body proportions make the author sort of the Liefeld of his day.

    I take it back about Boys On The Run,it started cute,but at the middle it just went in other way,at the end you realize it was very depressing story,i mean sure real life is the same shit but wow,some really depressing shit.

    I'd say his drawings have a childish charm that Liefeld's lack, and that's why I really enjoy them while barelly tolerating most things Liefeld. Part of it is certainly comes from the very bright and vibrating colors, and another part comes from the lack of detail, as Liefeld tries to put too much detail on his stuff.
    I think that more interesting than the god-like powers of the protagonists, are the ludicrous plans of the villains (Stop the earth's rotation to DESTROY THE GRAVITY) and the over-the-top punishments that are inflicted on them.

    Just polished off Turf, very strong start from Jonathan Ross into comicdom. Nice to see a fanboy of such renown do good in the real thing, even if his characters are slightly wooden and the first couple of issues massively overscripted. By the end he learns to let the art tell the story.

    Then on a bit of a Jeff Lemire spree with Nobody, his take on the Invisible Man. So so, bit of a hipster indy thing I feel as it doesn't really have all that much to say. However the artwork is a nice fit to the story of detachment, and I like whenever I see the same name under both key credits. Now I'm on to Sweet Tooth, similar case but already so so much better. Decided to check out Lemire after Animal Man and not regretting it, though I do hope the Swamp Thing/Animal Man crossover ends soon...

    If ending the crossover means getting Lemire and Foreman back on AM, I'm all for it. Then again, the crossover's just getting started and last issue was interesting enough compared to most. And man, Poison Ivy's going to be in it October!
