|Give it to usssss!|
If the Amazon pre-order page is accurate, this newest omnibus will run $35 and will be released on December 20, 2016.
In the meantime, I'd like to marvel over how much momentum Junji Ito has been getting over the past two years alone. Two titles re-released (Uzumaki, Gyo), two new volumes (Cat Diary, Fragments), and now Tomie. Since 2002 a few different publishers have been trying to introduce and re-introduce his stories into English, and finally they've found some traction. Herein lies the importance of purchasing physical copies! Let the publishers know that we want them to keep 'em coming!

"With a live-action film adaptation of Kengo Hanazawa's zombie survival manga I am a Hero coming on April 23, 2016 from Shinsuke Sato (GANTZ), the series is set to get a spin-off one-shot from manga's "Prince of Horror" Junji Ito, the acclaimed and influential author ofTomie, Uzumaki and Gyo.

Ever wonder just how convoluted and confusing Junji Ito releases are?Wonder no more, thanks to KoyanagiLulu.
Much of the mess comes from the fact that most of his smaller volumes are compiled and re-released as whole new volumes. The Junji Ito Kyoufu Collection, for instance. Which was then re-compiled for the English release, Museum of Horror.
Between 2011-2014 those covers you may not recognize are from a series that he only illustrated, Yuukoku no Rasputin (written by Takashi Nagasaku).
