At the Mountains of Madness is one of H.P. Lovecraft’s genre defining classic horror stories. For the hardcore fan of H.P. Lovecraft’s work, it can be tough to find truly good graphic novel adaptations, and pitfalls abound when attempting to adapt a purely written work into any other medium.
Thankfully, Gou Tanabe really delivers. His ability to capture the majesty of the Antarctic wilderness in his expansive illustrations is impressive. Through his writing and realistic illustrative style, even the most mundane scenes from Lovecraft’s novella are a visual treat and fascinating to read. This attention to detail runs throughout and serves to bring the graphic horror elements of the story to life as well.
Whether you’re a longtime fan of Lovecraft’s classic stories of cosmic horror or new to the genre, I would highly recommend Gou Tanabe’s At the Mountains of Madness.

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!Add to CartLearn More
