The biggest, the baddest, and the best volume of Kowabana to date is finally here! Kowabana: Origins comes out next Thursday, October 4th, but if you pre-order the book right now you can grab it for just 99 cents!
“The internet has long been a hotbed of the creepy and unknown. In the West we have stories like Jeff the Killer or Slender Man that have enthralled and terrified audiences for years. But how about in the East?
Have you ever heard of Kunekune, the mysterious figure that drives people mad upon sight? How about the house they call Pandora, with its secrets so terrifying that generations have attempted to bury its truth? Who or what is the thing children call Hisaruki? What horrible truths hide behind the curse of the mummy known as Ryoumen Sukuna?
Kowabana: ‘True’ Japanese scary stories from around the internet: Origins features 26 of the best creepypastas from Japan. These tales are the cream of the crop when it comes to Japanese horror. Follow the history of Japan’s thriving creepypasta culture and experience a new type of terror, with many stories being translated into English for the first time right here.
You’ve never experienced horror like this before.”
If you want to read it in sweet, sweet paperback format, you can also grab that one over here.
