Manga debuts in Monthly Comic Beam on November 12

The November issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Beam magazine revealed on Saturday that manga creator Suehiro Maruo will draw a new one-shot manga titled "Diabolic" in the magazine's next issue on November 12. The magazine previews the story with the tagline, "Does God exist in a place ruined by the fires of war?"

Hiroshi Harada adapted Maruo's 1984 erotic horror manga Mr. Arashi's Amazing Freak Show (Shojo Tsubaki) into an anime film in 1992. The manga also inspired a live-action film adaptation in May 2017. Blast Books published the manga's one compiled volume in North America in 1993. Maruo won the "New Artist Prize" of the 13th Annual Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prizes in 2009, although he has been drawing manga professionally since 1980.

Last Gasp Publishing released Maruo's The Strange Tale of Panorama Island manga in 2013. The manga was nominated for the 2014 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.

Maruo ended his Tomino no Jigoku (Tomino the Damned) manga last November.
