Horror master Junji Ito will be taking part in San Diego Comic-Con’s virtual Comic-Con@Home 2021, and you can catch his panel on July 24 at 3 P.M. PST. And one lucky fan will get more than just a panel — they’ll get to take home a shikishi Ito is going to make during the panel.
Shikishi are special art boards that are popular in Japan. The winner will be chosen by random, and you must be at least 17 and a citizen of America or Canada to take part. You also have to have a VIZ member account. If you can check off all these prerequisites, then the next part is pretty easy. In order to be in the running, you just have to favorite Junji Ito’s page on the VIZ website. If you’ve already favorited it, then you’re already in the running.
