Gou Tanabe's Manga Adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror to Conclude in May Issue


The May issue of Monthly Comic Beam magazine will mark the end of Gou Tanabe's manga adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror. The manga, which began in October 2021 and went on hiatus in April 2022 before resuming in September, will see its first and second compiled volumes released on Friday.

Lovecraft's horror novella follows the Whateley family and a monstrous creature in the remote town of Dunwich, Massachusetts. Tanabe previously adapted Lovecraft's works in manga form, including The Shadow Over Innsmouth, The Call of Cthulhu, The Hound and Other Stories, At the Mountains of Madness, The Colour Out of Space, The Haunter of the Dark, and The Outsider.

Tanabe's The Shadow Over Innsmouth was serialized from May 2020 to March 2021 and will be released as a single omnibus volume by Dark Horse Comics in November. His At the Mountains of Madness was nominated for Best Comic at the 46th Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2019. Meanwhile, Tanabe's adaptation of The Dunwich Horror will come to a close next month, leaving fans to eagerly await his next project.
