I can’t talk about spooky, supernatural reading without mentioning xxxHolic (or Holic) by CLAMP, one of my favourite manga.
Holic introduces us to Watanuki, a young man who encounters the powerful time-space witch Yuko. Recognizing Watanuki’s own, problematic supernatural abilities, Yuko offers to assist him… in exchange for working at her wish-granting shop. Spirits of all shapes, sizes, and powers seek her magic and Watanuki ends up doing the legwork for every transaction. Pictured here we have Volume 3 (of 19) which contains chapter 18, the only printed material to make me afraid to turn the lights out at night. (I would never spoil, but you’re welcome to check out a chapter summary.) The artwork is stunning throughout the entire series and just odd enough to add an extra level of creepy when needed.
Happy Halloween reading!
