Cat-Eyed Boy is a goblin child, hated by humans and demons alike. He has a knack for mischief and is pals with every cat on earth. Cat-Eyed Boy is a master of illusion and can alter his appearance at will. Oh, and he likes pissing on things. Trouble follows the Cat-Eyed Boy wherever he goes. If he hides in your attic, chances are that you will soon be besieged by wicked, cackling monsters.

This is the second of a two-volume set: almost 1,000 pages of Cat-Eyed Boy. There are some great stories her

The Cat Eyed Boy stories are definitely more fun than they are good, exactly. Definitely not on the same level as, say, The Drifting Classroom, these stories are still kind of a blast, in an old-fashioned horror comic kind of way. And they're full of pretty great monsters, though this volume wasn't quite as good for it as the first volume was.

It's still really lame that they split one of the stories in half. I'm pretty sure they could've easily file the whole story into one volume, and then put
Cat-eyed boy always gets blamed for the monstrous things he saves humans from, but he doesn't really care as long as he can live in their attics and steal their food. I love that he's not always moping about his place in life, and that he has enough vim to piss on things that he thinks are stupid (can we have an indie car decal with Cat-eyed boy pissing on things to rival the inexplicable Calvin ones found on many trucks around the country? jk.)

Creepy and funny. I can't explain the appeal of wat

Love this book. Umezu is one of the all time greats.
En mi opinión, mucho mejor que el primero. Grotesco y surrealista, pero no sin cierta ingenuidad infantil, cierta animalidad muy fina.

Este trabajo de los sesenta deja entrever, más que los demás que le he conocido, su influencia en otros autores, como Junji Ito, Hiseshi Hino y Minetaro Mochizuki.

Uno de los más imprescindibles maestros del género.
Four stars for the shorter tales at the end (especially "The Stairs") which I liked better and thought had more emotional resonance. As always, amazing and frightening creatures throughout.

Just as entertaining at Volume 1, though I will insist that the intensity of "Band of 100 Monsters" is not maintained through the two volumes.
