Kick off your Halloween festivities with some treats at the International and Area Studies Library most spooktacular event of the season! Grab some free candy and then sit back and learn about manga horror master Junji Ito with a special guest lecture by Billy Tringali, a graduate student in library and information science with expertise in horror and the gothic, vampire studies, and anime/manga. Then browse our special display of horror comics from around the world—bring your I-Card if you want to check some out to read later! Finally, come in costume and enter our costume contest to win your own copy of Junji Ito’s most recent horror compilation Shiver.
