ROAR OF AGES, by Junji Ito

The third story from the VOICES IN THE DARK anthology. Click the tag for more.

Two friends in the woods uncover the truth behind a mysterious flood.

Another safe for work story from Ito. Is the man losing his touch?!

Given that he turns that pretty dull premise into an interesting tale by the end, I would say no. Read on to see how he does it, and for some pretty gnarly depictions of floods.

This story will answer your suspicions about all terrible comedians who are also terribly successful.

Actually I'm surprised the Joker has never tried this before.

Halloween week - THE DARK DRINKS BLOOD, by Junji Ito

This is the first story from the VOICES IN THE DARK anthology, which I've begun translating.

I've had a gloomy, depressing week, so it probably wasn't a good idea to bring you another story by Junji Ito. He's the guy behind UZUMAKI and GYO, so things are almost guaranteed to go disastrously wrong.

To remedy this, I've tried to post only the pages that contain an uplifting story of teenage love. Unfortunately this has meant excising almost every page of the story.
