THE COLLECTION by Shintaro Kago

We've been sorta overrun with Kagomania here the past week, haven't we? But I assume that nobody really minds, right? Today, we received another great gift from the manga-duo of Rizzah & Anonymous K over at Wanted: Cheap Manga - a new and utterly gruesome short scanlation of The Collection by Shintaro Kago.



This one is old style Kago, with a simple conceit and pretty realistic and grisly gore, like The Savage Mouth by Sakyo Komatsu or Chuck Palahniuk's Guts. As Rizzah explains it,
The Collection is a fucked-up story of one girl’s obsession with a dude. She collects everything he touches… EVERYTHING. Very NSFW, NSIFOYGF, and NSIFOYMAD (try to figure out those last two!).

Click here to download The Collection, then go over and leave comment on Wanted: Cheap Manga.

Yaaay!
I've found that some Kago stories are safer than others... I managed to persuade my friends to read a few, and they enjoyed them. Those ones were really tame, though. There are some I definitely wouldn't show anyone.

yeah, i liked this! maybe i don't know much about much but it was interesting to see a horror style comic coming from an alternative style art--- I mean since most horror manga i know has a pretty generic style =) twas a really cool story too x

I can't work it out.

@thirtes: Yeah, this one is as gory as he usually is, but a little more linear than his grossest tales

thanks for the interest in the zine! I have shipping options for all over, if you want a copy-- i just mailed one to new zealand this week.
