Uzumaki by Junji Ito

According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in small ways: seashells, ferns, whirlpools in water, whirlwinds in air. And in large ways: the spiral marks on people's bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi's father, the voice from the cochlea in your inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurôzu-cho are pulled ever deeper, as if into a whirlpool from which there is no return..."

thanks for checking out the link Chris. i really love Junji Ito's work. the characters look harried & have dark circles under their eyes, & particularly intense the way the eyeballs are drawn at times. very intelligent storylines.

I agree re: Junji Ito. If I return to the site you posted, will I be able to follow the story?
