Go Tanabe (1975 - ) is a Japanese manga artist of bizarre horror. Born in Tokyo.
In the genre of bizarre fantasy, he became interested in yokai after reading a book of "Gegege no Kitaro" that his father bought for him when he was a child. When he was in junior high school, he liked demons and would draw and copy demons from the books and come up with his own original demons. In high school, he read Yankee manga to keep up with his peers, but soon became bored. He learned about sculptor Yasushi Nirasawa in the magazine "Hobby Japan," and from there he began watching horror movies that used SFX.
Starting with "Sunakichi" in 2001, he has received awards in numerous national competitions and attracted much attention.
In 2004, he worked on H. P. Lovecraft's novel "The Outsider," and since then, he has been eagerly working on the comicalization of Lovecraft's works. His overwhelming drawing ability is internationally acclaimed, and he was nominated for the Eisner Award in the U.S. in 2006 for "Demon Dog: Lovecraft's Masterpieces" and won the ACBD in France in 2007 for "In the Mountains of Madness: Lovecraft's Masterpieces".
