Keeping It Ghastly: I Am A Hero omnibus vol 1

“Keeping It Ghastly” is a bi weekly article on Japanese horror comics which have English print editions. Some are from famous authors, others are from unknowns and underground artist circles. Either way, it’s going to be to a terrifying/awesome ride to keep horror manga on our bookshelves!


Hideó Suzuki has a hard time with social interactions, but when he’s alone it all seems alright. He has locked doors to keep out intruders, an imaginary friend to talk to, and a rifle to remind himself that he is in control of his life, that he is a hero. Facing the growing reality that he may never make it as a solo manga artist and that the world seems to have left him behind, Hideó’s prospects don’t seem so good. To make matters worse he’s been hallucinating a lot, and after witnessing the mutilated victim of a car crash get up and walk away, he’s not sure what’s real anymore.
