Junji Ito (Japanese: 伊藤 潤二 Hepburn: Itō Junji, born July 31, 1963) is a Japanese horror mangaka. Some of his most notable works include Tomie, a series chronicling an immortal girl who drives her stricken admirers to madness; Uzumaki, a three-volume series about a town obsessed with spirals; and Gyo, a two-volume story where fish are controlled by a strain of sentient bacteria called “the death stench.”
His other works are Itou Junji Kyoufu Manga Collection, a collection of different short stories including a series of stories named Souichi’s Journal of Delights, and Junji Ito’s Cat Diary: Yon & Mu, a self-parody about him and his wife living in a house with two cats. In 2019, Ito received an Eisner Award for his manga adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.
