The May 2019 issue of Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Beam magazine has announced that Gou Tanabe will launch a manga adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu story.
The manga is part of a series of manga adaptations of H.P. Lovecraft’s works by Tanabe. Dark Horse Comics published his manga of H.P. Lovecraft’s The Hound and Other Stories in August 2017, which includes “The Hound,” “The Temple,” and “The Nameless City.” Dark Horse Comics also licensed Tanabe’s At The Mountains Of Madness, which was nominated for Best Comic by the 46th Angoulême International Comics Festival earlier in 2019. Tanabe then released manga based on Lovecraft’s The Colour Out of Space and The Haunter of the Dark. He also earlier drew an adaptation of Lovecraft’s The Outsider. Tanabe ended his manga based on The Shadow Out of Time in November 2018.
