Tomie returns in a collection of stories even more shocking and unsettling than the first. In this volume, a surgeon implants part of Tomie's regenerating anatomy into a young patient, with macabre results. In 'Painter,' Tomie becomes the object of competition between struggling artists looking for the perfect muse. Their art suffers, among other things. 'Murder' is a (relatively) whimsical story of a hapless young man who must house a particularly demanding piece of Tomie while she is regrowing. 'Hair' examines the insecurities and societal pressures placed upon teenage girls, as two school chums go to great lengths to obtain Tomie's vibrant glossy sheen. The last story, 'Orphan Girl,' places Tomie in the mansion of an elderly couple who want nothing more than a child of their own...to feed, to clothe, to spoil, to poison... WARNING: Tomie is not recommended for those with delicate constitutions or weak stomachs.
