Manga adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft story launched last October

The May issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Comic Beam magazine revealed on Tuesday that Gou Tanabe's manga adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror story will go on hiatus until the magazine's August issue in July.

Tanabe launched the manga in Monthly Comic Beam in October 2021.

Lovecraft's horror novella centers on the Whateley family and a mysterious monster in the isolated village of Dunwich, Massachusetts.

Tanabe launched a manga based on H.P. Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth (Innsmouth no Kage) story in Monthly Comic Beam in May 2020, and ended it in March 2021.

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.

These manga are 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.

Update: The manga will instead return in the manga's October issue on September 12. Source: Monthly Comic Beam September issue
