Funko Pop! Animation: Junji Ito Collection
Prepare to be spooked because Funko has just unleashed their Junji Ito Collection Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures.
Junji Ito Collection is an animated horror anthology series adapted from various works by Junji Ito. If you have internet and a minimum interest in horror, you may have heard of Junji Ito. The author, born in Gifu, Japan, in 1963, usually has his horror manga shared on the web and ferociously viewed by fans. His work already has cult status and is worth reading.
Among her most recognized works is Tomie, a series that tells the chronicles of an immortal young woman who drives her admirers to madness; Uzumaki, a three-volume series about a city possessed by the curse of the spirals; Gyo, a two-volume story where fish is controlled by the strain of a self-conscious bacteria called “the stench of death,” and Black Paradox, a one-volume story of four young people who meet on a website and agree to collective suicide.
Funko has chosen five of its most terrifying characters for its first Pop! series, divided between four regular figures and one exclusive. As regulars, we will see Yuuko, the main character of Slug Girl; Tomie, from the Manga of the same name; Fuchi, a cannibalistic monster, serial killer, and professional model who appears in two of the Rumors and Fashion Model stories; and Souichi Tsujii, the main character of many of the short stories in Junji Ito’s collection. Finally, Cursed Hideo from Slug Girl will be exclusive at BAM.
