BEAUTY LABYRINTH OF RAZORS

1. SO MANY RAZORS



There's been talk about this new collection of Jun Hayami's comics being released by Creation Books for a while now. It was supposed to come out September 1, but seems to have been delayed so far. BOOOO!

Anyone who enjoys this blog (and specifically, you Maruo-freaks who keep showing up!) will dig this collection of depraved, erotic-grotesque-nonsense comics. Hats off to Creation, who were responsible for the (in)famous Ultra-Gash Inferno collection by Maruo, for going ahead with this books-- the first time Jun Hayami's stuff has been translated and made available in English. Determined types (read:otaku) can call or visit their LA store, info here.

Here is a quote about Jun Hayami's stuff-- "Readers thought Jun Hayami must be mentally ill until the reclusive artist was discovered two years ago." What the hell kind of quote is that? I'm guessing that this book will be extreme-to-the-max, and not for soft-stomached/sane folks.

Has anyone read this book yet? It has been released in the UK (I believe), so I'd love to hear how other people like this book. I'll be lined up (electronically) for when it becomes available on the Creation site or Amazon.





2. NEW COMIC: CHURCH OF MUTILATION by aaronk!



Our friend aaronk has started selling his new comic, Church of Mutilation. It's a 15-page B&W, available direct from him for $3.00 > I posted my dollars to him today, and can't wait to see this thing. Check out his site for more information on ordering it!

Coming next from him: "A romance story called "Fort Purgatory" and will contain no sex or violence or shit"


3. WE ARE POSTING A NEW KOJI AIHARA COMIC TOMORROW!
wheeeeee!

jun hayami's okay...he's no maruo (and his art is kind of meh sometimes) but he's certainly got his share of grotesque and meanspirited imagery going on. god knows when beauty labyrinth will actually be published but there are fan scanlations of a couple of his stories:
