Junji Ito was born in the Gifu prefecture of Japan in 1963. Inspired by Kazuo Umezu's comics and always watching his older sister's doodle, Ito decided to draw horror comics for himself. Trying to juggle his dental technician career with his increasingly popular hobby, life dramatically changed for Ito when he received an honorable mention from his influence Umezu, for submitting a short story to Gekkan Halloween. In Ito's eerie and captivating stories, his characters often are victims to unnatural circumstances or punished for minor offenses.
