This is mainly for Jessi! It’s just a list of creepy manga that I have read and enjoyed. I know I post and talk about mostly superhero type comics, but on occasion I like to have a change of pace. Plus I went through a period of time where I only read this type of stuff.
So without further ado, the list, in no particular order! I feel like I should put a giant disclaimer in this post, for all I know, my taste may be complete crap! But I figured if I enjoyed these, you might, too!
- MPD - Psycho by Eiji Otsuka and Shou Tajima: part detective comic, part creepshow!
- The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service by Eiji Otsuka and Housui Yamazaki: Some students have a particular skill set that makes them perfect for assisting the dead.
- Mail by Housui Yamazaki: A private detective has a special gun that can kill what isn’t alive.
- Orochi Blood by Kazuo Umezu: Classic gothic horror about two sisters.
- The Scary Book series by Kazuo Umezu: Horror anthology.
- Cat Eyed Boy by Kazuo Umezu: A series of grotesque stories with the Cat Eyed Boy connecting them all.
- Uzumaki (also called Spiral Into Horror) by Junji Ito: something’s really messed up in this town D:
- The Museum of Terror series by Junji Ito: includes the delightful bit of body horror that is Tomie!
- Blood The Last Vampire 2002 by Benkyo Tamaoki: about vampire assassin Saya, who happens to be a vampire herself.
That should get you started!
