I Recommend: Uzumaki

Find the first volume at [Amazon] [Borders] [Barnes & Noble]

We're well into October now, which for quite a few ladies means hunting down some Halloween reads! And few creators better represent comics with a spooky spirit than manga master Junji Ito.

One of the best examples of his work is Uzumaki, a series about a town haunted (if not outright terrorized) by spirals. "Spirals" may sound like a silly idea for a horror story menace, but between Ito's slow, eerie pacing and beautifully detailed artwork, this series can make even the most hardened cynic feel nervous around a snail shell.
