Panorama of Hell is a shocking, tortuous journey into the depths of one man's postnuclear Hell.

I really liked this manga because of how, although it was rather strange, alot of it was possible and I could really see it happening.

This comic is probably one of my favorites from Hino Hideshi, he keeps the creepy and shocking vibe throughout the whole thing which is why he's one of my favorite mangakas.
