- Itou Junji Kyoufu Manga Collection
Part of the Itou Junji Kyoufu Manga Collection. Tomie v01 and v02 make up the first two volumes of the Museum of Terror anthology series.
These rather disturbing tales tell the story of a high-school girl named Tomie, who can be seen as a living embodiment of lust and all the negative emotions that go along with it, such as jealousy. Tomie is the ultimate self-destructive entity, yet ironically she survives anything. Every male who encounters Tomie becomes obsessed with her and eventually kills and dismembers her. But Tomie is not human, and is always reborn...
Note: There is a third volume of Tomie called "Tomie: Again" which was included in the new japanese reissued two- volume version of the Junji Ito Horror Comic Collection. These new stories are not included in the original ComicsOne editions of Tomie, but are available in Dark Horse's Museum of Terror volume 2.
Note 2: Besides Junji Ito's Horror Comic Collection (Also called Museum of Terror), in 2000 Tomie was also published in a compilatory tankoubon called "Tomie, The Complete of Tomie". Regardless of the title, this volume does not include "Tomie Again" within its pages.
Note 3: Some people also consider "Tomie no kyoufu gaka" as part of the Tomie franchise. Tomie no kyoufu gaka was the first Tomie's compilation tankoubon that was ever released (It was published in 1996) and features five stand-alone stories (Gaka, Ansatsu, Mouhatsu, Youjo and Takitsubo) that were published a year later in Junji Ito's Horror Comic Collection.
To avoid confusion, Tomie no Kyoufu Gaka's collection is NOT missing from this archive. It was integrated into both volume 1 and 2 of the Tomie tankobon as one-shot stories. In order, they are v2ch9 (Gaka), v2ch10 (Ansatsu), v2ch11 (Mouhatsu), v2ch12 (Youjo), and v1ch6 (Takitsubo) if you are a stickler for reading them in order!
