If there's one graphic novel you read this horror season, make it Junji Ito's Uzumaki. A precursor to The Ring, Uzumaki ("Spiral Terror") tells the story of a small town whose inhabitants are consumed by a collective obsession with spirals that leads them to gruesome deaths. This book embodies the quintessential Japanese psychological terror that you've come to know and love from Asian cinema, and Ito's penchant for Lovecraftian-style supernatural chaos makes this edition a joy to behold. Finally back in print, Uzumaki is brought to you in a gorgeous deluxe format with beautiful full-color pages, originally published in black-and-white, now included. This book will keep you circling back for more!
