VIZ Media has acquired North American rights to a short story anthology from famed manga-ka Junji Ito, creator of Uzumaki. The anthology, Fragments of Horror, will be released in a deluxe hardcover format for Summer 2015. The T+ title will be presented in a deluxe hardcover edition under the VIZ Signature imprint.
The macabre stories from the horror master are his first work in the genre in eight years. Ito’s Uzumaki made the YALSA Top Ten Graphic Novel list for 2008 (see "YALSA's Top Ten 2008 Graphic Novels"); Viz also published his Gyo in North America. His work has been adapted into live action and animated features.
Among the storylines in Fragments of Horror are an old mansion that turns on its inhabitants; a dissection class with an unusual subject; and a funeral in which the dead are not laid to rest.
