Hi folks!

I am sad to report that Shigeru Mizuki (1922-2015) has passed away from a heart attack. While he did many things in his lifetime, he is most famous for the manga Hakaba Kitarou ("Graveyard Kitarou") which was renamed Gegege no Kitarou for the TV series.

Drawn and Quarterly, as it happens, is coming out with an English edition called Shigeru Mizuki's Kitaro next year.



So I thought I would show a few preview pages from the first volume. Safe for work, but this is a horror comic.

Meet Kitarou's parents. )

A while back, I reviewed a volume of Mizuki's autobiography, covering his war experiences (he lost an arm) and post-World War Two difficulties. http://www.skjam.com/2015/06/21/manga-review-showa-1944-1953-a-history-of-japan/

He will be missed.

"For many, the ‘80s along with the ‘70s was a golden era for horror films. A lot of those films from then are deeply ingrained in pop culture. We all know the story of The Exorcist, A Nightmare On Elm Street and Friday The 13th and so on. They have almost become our generation’s fairytales. We draw a lot on that mythology in Survivors’ Club, but we take it in unexpected directions." - Dale Halvorsen

"Brainy, ambitious and delightfully scary, Survivors' Club is a throwback to books like The Sandman and Hellblazer that made Vertigo a legend" - Joe Kelly, Locke & Key (quote on the front cover of the issue)

Writers: Lauren Beukes and Dale Halvorsen
Artist: Ryan Kelly

'Comicbook Resources' had this in their list of 'Scariest Comic Books of All Time". NSFW for nudity and gore. It was written by Grant Morrison.

Something I thought that might be of interest is Audible has released a full-cast (over fifty actors/actresses) dramatization of Locke & Key. It's free for the entire month of October and can be downloaded here.

As far as I can tell (it's over thirteen hours long) it covers the entire series.

For those not familiar with the series it's sort of hard to explain without spoilers but here's a tease... a family inherits an old mansion where certain keys can unlock doors and, well... here's a small selection from #1.

Again, it's been a long time since we checked in with Gyo. However, in the spirit of the Halloween season, let's get back to it. Click here to refresh yourself on the manga and then let's get straight to it!
