“A rare feast of unmitigated atrocity”-Nicholas Bornoff,
Pink Samurai Graphic art by Jun Hayami in the Japanese “erotic-grotesque” (ero-guro) style of manga, a unique fusion of sex and violence unlike anything seen in Western comics. Deranged killers, -innocent young women and leering perverts collide in some of the most feverishly lurid fantasies ever com-mitted to paper. Beauty Labyrinth of Razors is a compendium of Jun Hayami’s most disturbing work, containing twelve stories selected from his books. Refusing any limits this manga presents murderous psychopaths, polymorphic perverts, innocent victims in a deluge of horror more intense as each other, from Eros Thanatos stories in which the reader will emerge unscathed. Refusing any and all aesthetic complacency, Jun Hayami explore without injury the vivid wounds of the characters. The book is accompanied by an afterword where female readers questioned the author about his work.
