Uzumaki (3-in-1, Deluxe Edition) : Includes vols. 1, 2 & 3
Kurozu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the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 everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people's bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi's father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurozu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!

Our customer reviews
This is definitely one of the best manga I have ever read. Uzumaki is downright creepy and filled with very original, disturbing stories. Throughout the manga you follow Kirie Goshima & Shuuichi Saito as the town, Kurouzu-Cho, gets more and more 'twisted' by every second passing. I can most certainly say that this is a must-have if you're a fan of horror, or even if you just like to feel disturbed once in a while. This is also the first manga I have ever come across with a hardback cover, making it even better. Worth every penny to me!show moreby Robin S
