Horror Manga: Like I Need Another Hobby

Since I stumbled onto Hell Yeah Horror Manga a few days ago, I can’t stop thinking about Japanese horror. North America has nothing on the Japanese in terms of visual horror impact.

To illustrate my point:


“Fushigi no Tatari-chan”


“Corpse Party Blood Covered”


“I Am a Hero”

Even taken completely out of context, as these are, they’re immediately effective. (Tell me at least one of these won’t show up in your dreams tonight…)

I read horror comics when I was a kid, and “normal” comics when I got older. It’s been a while, but I’m getting the urge to pick up the habit again.

Any recommendations?

  • I’m a manga expert and I know which mangas you’ll enjoy:

    Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni by Ryukishi07. The TV series and manga are highly popular. So are the games.

    Higabana (forgot the rest of the title) also by Ryukishi07.

    Umineko no Naku Koro Ni, also by Ryukishi07 and highly popular.

    High School of the Dead, also extremely popular. You will not be disappointed.

    Here’s a few non horror manga that have great character development: Gunslinger Girl, Rozen Maiden, Black Butler

    Have you read The Darkness? Awesome comic book!

    Pay a visit to my dragon short story blog, I’m sure you’ll find a story to enjoy, and I hoped this helped!
