The Shadow Over Innsmouth Manga Ends on March 12

posted on by Alex Mateo
Manga based on H.P. Lovecraft's story debuted last May

This year's March issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Beam magazine revealed on Friday that Gou Tanabe's manga based on H.P. Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth (Innsmouth no Kage) story is ending in the magazine's next issue on March 12.

The magazine had revealed in December that the manga was entering its climax.

Tanabe launched the manga in the magazine last May. The horror novella centers on a student who is taking an antiquarian tour of New England. He goes to the seaport of Innsmouth and there he interacts with strange people and witnesses disturbing events.

Tanabe launched the manga adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu story in Monthly Comic Beam in May 2019, and ended the manga in November 2019.

Both manga are a 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 began releasing Tanabe's At The Mountains Of Madness manga in June 2019. The series was nominated for Best Comic by the 46th Angoulême International Comics Festival in 2019.

Tanabe also released manga based on Lovecraft's The Colour Out of Space and The Haunter of the Dark. He earlier drew an adaptation of Lovecraft's The Outsider. Tanabe ended his manga based on The Shadow Out of Time in November 2018.
