Gyo by Junji Ito

Junji Ito, do you know how much I love your stories?? Seriously, I love Junji Ito comics. They always make me totally freaked and yet feel better somehow...cause at least I'm not experiencing awful body gore no matter how awful things get. HA!

Gyo takes place in Okinawa where fish start sprouting legs and spewing gas, infecting everything around them. It's Junji at his best as usual. The gore is tolerable yet completely grotesque. How does that sentence fit?? Well you'll have to read it and see it. The fish are actually dead by the way. The legs on the fish are machine.. the real horror starts when it infects the inhabitants of Japan.

Read it and see if you want to step into the ocean after...
