Junji Ito's Cat Diary is a manga about the artist's cats done in his usual horror style. The publisher has posted the entire first chapter for free here so I'm sharing it on S_D.

Even for Junji Ito, this seems over the top...

This has always been the creepiest Ito for me. *shudder*

I love this. It's great that Ito's capable of self-parody.

One of the reasons I love him so much is that he's capable of being pants-wettingly terrifying and side-splittingly hilarious. Sometimes at the same time.

I love that Junji Ito's reaction to keetoms is the same as his reaction to cosmic horror.

He's basically the modern HP lovecraft, minus the racism.

Lovecraft also loved cats. I mean, he found a way to turn loving cars into a racist thing (because that's the way he was), but he loved cats.

Yeah, that's why I made the comparison.

One of my favorite Lovecraft stories is "The Cats of Ulthar", which I think would be the Lovecraft story most appropriate to be converted into a fairy tale.

"The Cats of Ulthair" was actually adapted as a storyarc in the lovely manga The Ancient Magus's Bride!

Of course Ito would marry a woman with no pupils.
