- Full Description
Dyer and Danforth from the Miskatonic University research team take their small plane through the unknown Antarctic mountain range--and land to explore the vast, cyclopean alien city that lies beyond it. Here at last they will discover the hideous secret of all life on Earth--amidst the ruins of its first civilization, built by the alien Elder Things with the help of their bioengineered monstrosities, the shoggoths. But can they escape these uttermost vaults at the bottom of the world, and keep sanity enough to warn mankind?
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! A journey into the core of Lovecraft's mythos--the deep caverns and even deeper time of the inhospitable continent. Highly detailed, very nicely done artwork that finally does this amazing story the justice it deserves.
We named Gou Tanabe’s H.P. Lovecraft’s The Hounds and Other Stories one of our 100 favorite horror comics of all time, calling it “a strong tribute to the genre luminary and a fascinating look at how weird fiction can translate to other media.” ..his contributions to cosmic terror remain foundational and ripe for interpretation and reinvention. It’s with great pleasure, then, that we can confirm that Tanabe’s Lovecraft manga adaptations will continue to find a home at Dark Horse Comics, which [has now] published H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness.
First serialized in Astounding Stories at the height of the pulp era in 1936, At the Mountains of Madness is frequently cited as one of Lovecraft’s best and most influential stories. Despite technically hovering at novella length, At the Mountains of Madness is the sole Lovecraft tale to have earned a spot on our 50 Best Horror Novels of All Time list, and Academy Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro has long pursued a seemingly doomed desire to bring the story to film, with Tom Cruise even attached to star at one point.
The synopsis may sound familiar to fans of John Carpenter’s The Thing (although that film spun out of a different classic cosmic horror tale): a 1931 expedition team arrives at a deserted Antarctic campsite, only to find that the previous crew of men and sled dogs dead and disfigured. Some are hideously mangled while others have been dissected in a methodical manner. Even more disturbing, though, is the oddly shaped mound of snow nearby—and what lies beneath. If you’re a fan of Lovecraft, you know that exploring long-lost depths rarely results in sunshine and roses.
The novel-length story [is now] in two double-sized manga volumes of over 300 pages each.
