Description

A deluxe edition of Orochi, featuring all nine of the classic interconnected short stories by horror master Kazuo Umezz, the creator of The Drifting Classroom! A mysterious young woman slithers her way into the lives of unsuspecting people like the legendary multitailed serpent for which she is named-Orochi. Umezz's classic horror manga opens with "Sisters," in which Orochi affects the lives of two wealthy siblings who couldn't be more alike...or more different. Next, in "Bones," Orochi helps a man come back to life after a terrible accident, but resurrection can be a deadly business...

Author Biography

Kazuo Umezz started drawing professionally in the 1950s and is considered the most influential horror manga artist ever. His many horror and sci-fi/horror works include Cat Eyed Boy, Orochi, The Drifting Classroom, Senrei (Baptism), My Name is Shingo (winner of the Prix du Patrimoine in 2018 at the Angouleme International Comics Festival), The Left Hand of God/Right Hand of the Devil, and Fourteen. His popular gag series Makoto-Chan and Again prove that Umezz is also an accomplished humor cartoonist. Umezz'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.
