Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Junji Ito's "Hanging Balloons" and other decapitations...

It seems that I've survived the social horrors of Whatevermas 2010 only thanks to the materialistic splendour of it all.

And now that it's only a matter of hours until Mercury Retrograde will fuck off and increase my interweb speed again, I thought 'tis the perfect time to share some new scanlations with you that the generous people at Same Hat! have been working on and tumblring about: Namely Hanging Balloons by Junji Ito. Which would have been part of Museum of Terror had it not been killed by Dark Horse, apparently.

It's probably easiest to read the whole story by using the "hangingballoons" tag on their Tumblr as it's posted image/scanned page by image/scanned page. The scanlation has now reached page 30 and new pages are queued to be posted daily for your enhanced serialised pleasure.

Make sure to RSS their blog so you won't miss a page.


The scanlation is now available in its entirety over here!
