Tomie was serialized in Gekkan Halloween, a shoujo horror manga magazine (The magazine is now defunct).

Plot overview:
Every male who encounters Tomie becomes obsessed with her and eventually kills and dismembers her. But Tomie is not human, and is always reborn...

Note: There is a third volume of Tomie called "Tomie: Again" which was included in the new japanese reissued two- volume version of the Junji Ito Horror Comic Collection (伊藤潤二 恐怖博物館). These new stories are not included in the original ComicsOne editions of Tomie, but are available in Dark Horse's Museum of Terror volume 2.

Note 2: Besides Junji Ito's Horror Comic Collection (Also called Museum of Terror), in 2000 Tomie was also published in a compilatory tankoubon called "Tomie, The Complete of Tomie" -「富江」 (全)THE COMPLETE OF TOMIE-. Regardless of the title, this volume does not include "Tomie Again" within its pages.

Note 3: Some people also consider "Tomie no kyoufu gaka" [ シリーズ富江の 恐怖 画家] as part of the Tomie franchise. Tomie no kyoufu gaka was the first Tomie's compilatory tankoubon that was ever released (It was published in 1996) and features five stand-alone stories (Gaka, Ansatsu, Mouhatsu, Youjo and Takitsubo) that were published a year later in Junji Ito's Horror Comic Collection.

Endless story

The manga started quite poor, art and plot , however later chapters shows improvement. I am guessing this is his first book?!?!
The plot is quite simple, Tomie a girl who gets killed in horrible way but always comes back, and somehow whoever get in contact with her turn into freaky monsters with a thirst to kill Tomie. The story pretty much repeats itself but somehow the manga is quite addictive, especially at the end of volume 1 and volume 2, the art is pretty nice.
At some point you though that at last the plot is coming together to explain or resolve something but nah'ah, endless story, just like Tomie herself.
Just like Mandy Rin said, once you've read one, you've read them all. Since this is my 2nd book from Itou sensei, the first was Uzumaki, I can see clearly that this is his style, mysterious events without explaination.
If you like this one, try Uzumaki, similar but better both art and story, however, again, don't expect anything is gonna resolved at the end.

Poor Tomie

Warning: Contains mild spoilers

A series of short stories about the entity 'Tomie' (I say 'entity', because she is most definitely not human). Ito Junji manages to recycle the same plot, but add, twist and distort it so as to keep it relatively enjoyable throughout. However, it is somewhat forgettable (once you've read one, you've read them all), and is redeemed mainly by the art and concept.

It is interesting in that you almost feel sympathetic for her, despite the lives she ruins. I believe that due to her tragic curse, she has become the jaded and cynical creature she has, relying only on herself (it is evident in Volume 2 Chapter 10 that the various Tomie's share a memory). Not being able to die, and having memory passed on through generations must make life seem meaningless, hence her remorseless attitude.

Overall, I would reccommend giving it a go if you enjoy horror, however don't expect anything groundbreaking.
