Now, for the first time (in North America, anyway) all three volumes of this epic of weirdness are available in a single hardcover edition. This is a hefty, well-constructed, 648 page volume that contains everything that originally appeared in the three softcover volumes along with an afterword – at a lower price than the combined cost of the softcovers. Once you have entered Junji Ito's small fogbound town on the coast of Japan you will never again look at spirals in the same way again... "Spirals! This town is contaminated with spirals! – aaaiiieeeeee..."
