Nukekubi are a variety of yōkai from Japanese ghost stories who, despite appearing like regular humans, are actually otherworldly beings capable of detaching their heads from their bodies, at which point their heads fly through the air terrifying unsuspecting people.

They’re the sort of mystical apparitions that have haunted the imaginations of storytellers for centuries, and they’re also a common thread between the late Anthony Bourdain and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
