Kazuo Umezu was born September 3, 1936 in Wakayama, Japan. Umezu, who started drawing professionally in the 1950s, is considered the most influential horror manga artist ever. His many horror and sci-fi/horror works include Nekome Kozo ("The Cat-Eyed Kid", 1967-1968), Orochi, The Drifting Classroom (1972-1974), Ultraman (a manga adaptation of the TV series), Senrei ("Baptism"), My Name is Shingo, The Left Hand of God/Right Hand of the Devil, and Fourteen. His popular gag series Makoto-Chan (1976) and Again prove that Umezu is also an accomplished humor cartoonist. (He is also a musician.) Umezu's weird style, incredible ideas and sometimes terrifying imagery have made him a fixture of Japanese pop culture, and his work has been adapted into movies, anime and collectibles.

HOLY SHIZ! The second volume continues to up the anxiety, the suspension, the dread, and horror! As the pages alternate, I found myself filled with tense stress for the characters, I literally let out sighs, gasp, and phrases like "Noo!, Oh my gawd! Yes! Beat his ass!" My eyes even got watery. This series is so far filling my Halloween terror manga desire. I've never felt this much intensity before. Its like The Walking Dead comics but this one is so gripping and far more freaking disturbing. They just have to make it! I already began my thoeries! And just like the characters, I feel brave enough to venture forward, and at the same time I'm losing my insanity with them...just to survive!

When I opened issue 1, I was bored for the first chapter. A silly child whining about toys and gifts to his silly mother. It was sorta graphic, as he called her a witch and broke many things in the house. It was not until he reached the school and the earthquake scene that I held the book to my chest and felt a deep thud of fear beat in me. I liked this. I kept reading like mad, immediately buying the 2nd issue. It was amazing, the final scene strangling scene of utter chaos and madness. I have not yet bought 3 because.... they don't have it and I am too lazy to ask them for it. Please pick this up with issue one and 3. How about 4,5,6, and the rest. This is a god story. Epic as hell!
