Junji and Ito's Cat Diary cover

Junji Ito’s Cat Diary: Yon & Mu by Junji Ito

“The master of horror manga brings his furry family to life in this illustrated collection of day-to-day encounters with cats Yon and Mu and his partner, A-Ko. This is the first book I’ve read where I feel truly seen as a cat owner. What I really enjoyed were the adorable depictions of obsession and cuteness between the cats and their owners…except Junji Ito-style, with terrifying teeth, pupil-less eyes and the menacing eeriness the artist is so well known for. Never before has my neurotic need for making my house the most enjoyable space for my cats been so justified and understood. Recommended to fans of horror manga, cat lovers, and those who enjoy short story-style comics and webtoons.” –Julian, Main Library
