H.P. Lovecraft’s classic story “At the Mountains of Madness” is getting a manga adaptation. Dark Horse will release Gou Tanabe’s H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness Volume 1 on June 12. The 316-page, black-and-white paperback has an MSRP of $19.99.

At the Mountain of Madness follows a disastrous 1930s-era expedition to the inhospitable continent of Antarctica, where the travellers find a campsite strewn with dead bodies, including several that are definitely not human.

Tanabe was nominated for a 2018 Eisner for another adaptation, H. P. Lovecraft’s The Hound and Other Stories, which landed among the top 100 graphic novels in terms of sales month of release (see “Top 300 Graphic Novels Actual--July 2017”).

“At the Mountains of Madness” remains one of Lovecraft’s most enduring tales of the Elder Things, with multiple comic adaptations (see “Andy Warhol, Nick Cave, The Ramones, More”) and games inspired by the horror story (see “Rob Daviau Tackles Lovecraftian Horror In New Game”). It is also Guillermo del Toro’s holy grail, with the filmmaker having pursued a live-action adaptation for years (see “Roland's Not Dead Yet”).
