Junji Ito - Japanese Manga Horror

I recently stumbled across this artist's work - I am admittedly not a huge Manga fanatic, but I found his stuff cool. Weirdly, when I looked up his bio I learned that he was born in 1963 (the year my mother was born) and had his first story published in 1987 (the year I was born) which I thought was pretty neat.... I like those kind of little things :P

Some of the recurring themes of Ito's work include body horror, seemingly ordinary characters who begin to act out of irrational compulsion, the breakdown of society, deep sea organisms, and the inevitability of one's demise.
