Dragon Head was in its element when, following an earthquake, three people found themselves trapped underground after their train derailed, surrounded by corpses. Where as DH's characters don't stay underground for more than a few volumes, Metro Survive's tale of survival starts and finishes with its character underground. The two are different, as a result, but to begin with the feelings of claustrophobia and panic expressed make it easy to link the titles. (FYI, DH goes to shit after its early earthquake/train drama.)

They both have apocaliptic settings and a world mostly completly covered in darkness.

Story takes place in Japan right after a disaster of catastrophic proportions has happened.

The stories are similar because they talk about disasters that may come to happen someday. (or not)

Both Dragon Head & Distant Sky are extremely dark. Both have a very lonely feeling. Both include 2 Male & Female characters trapped in a dark place. Dragon Head is in a tunnel whereas Distant Sky is in a city. Both characters try to survive and find a way out while coming across disturbing obstacles . Dragon Head is a little darker and a bit more disturbing than distant sky but there both great and well worth the read.

6000 was heavily inspired by Dragon Head--both feature pitch black darkness as a central theme, and explore ideas of fear. Dragon Head has a more epic-style narrative than 6000, and explores apocalyptic themes as well. It was also highly acclaimed at the time of release, and well worth it for fans of very well-written horror. 6000 is more focused on straight up terrifying you than Dragon Head, but it is also extremely well written and concise. It has a good balance of frightening moments and a never-ending feeling of dread.

Both mangas are placed in a apocalyptic Japan where the main characters have to survive with other who are left fend for themselves. I am a hero differs mainly from taking true psychological turn on how to tell it's story while Dragon head is more or less cliche inferior form of the genre.

Both deal with survival, finding the truth and what really happened to their world.

Both are creepy and fall into the semihorror genre. Uzumaki is a bit stronger then what I've seen so far in Dragon Head though.

They both have major catastrophe that takes place during school trip. In both manga you'll find elements of survival, mad people, violence and amazing ending. Enjoy!
