First volume of At the Mountains of Madness launches on June 26
Gou Tanabe's previous take on author H.P. Lovecraft—H.P. Lovecraft's The Hound—was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2018, and now it's time to see what the brilliant mangaka has in store for his latest adaptation. H.P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness volume 1 hits shelves from Dark Horse on June 26, featuring a translation by Zack Davisson. Ahead of that, we have some exclusive preview pages to set the stage for the horrors that are about to unfold!
January 25, 1931: an expedition team arrives at a campsite in Antarctica . . . to find its crew of men and sled dogs strewn and dead. But a still more horrific sight is the star-shaped mound of snow nearby . . . for under its five points is a grave--and what lies beneath is not human!
At the Mountains of Madness is a journey into the core of Lovecraft's mythos--the deep caverns and even deeper time of the inhospitable continent where the secret history of our planet is preserved--amidst the ruins of its first civilization, built by the alien Elder Things with the help of their bioengineered monstrosities, the shoggoths.
Since it was first published in Astounding Stories during the classic pulp era, At the Mountains of Madness has influenced both horror and science fiction worldwide!
