Another month has gone by, which means a new issue of COMIC BEAM made its way to my local Kinokuniya. This issue ("July" but released in early June in Japan) features the much anticipated 2nd chapter of Suehiro Maruo's Imomushi. As you guys all know, Imomushi (Caterpillar) is Maruo's adaptation of the psycho-sexual short story of the same name by Edogawa Rampo.
Check out my post from last month for details about Imomushi's plot, along with panels and pages from chapter one.
I heard from my buddy Monika that the new COMIC BEAM with chapter three is out already in Japan. Look for a post on that next month! For now check out these pics of this installment of hot/gross Suehiro Maruo x Edogawa Rampo action:
Title page for chapter two.
Flashback scenes of when Lt. Sunaga & his wife Tokiko are reunited at the military hospital.
Detail panel of Tokiko's anguished face.
Limbless and unable to speak, Lt. Sunaga uses a pencil in his mouth to scratch out communication.
As with his adaptation of Panorama Island, Maruo's is creating intricate and lovely geometric panel layouts for this comic.
Um, oh right... this comics is NSFW. Did I mention that?
The first of many bad dreams for Tokiko.
And by "bad dreams" we're talking like, REALLY BAD DREAMS.
Last panel of chapter two, check back for more next month!
