“The Mummy” continues with original web manga, “The Mummy: Dark Stories” – debuting this week!
While The Mummy chapter in the “Dark Universe” may be over, Universal Pictures and GANMA! will be presenting an original we manga to tie-in to the Alex Kurtzman directed film. “The Mummy: Dark Stories” will begin publication online on July 15, 2017 and will consist of 4 episodes that will continue the story and further enrich the “Dark Universe.”
Each episode will be written and drawn by different artists. “The Mummy: Dark Stories” will release in the following order as seen below:
- July 15, 2017: Episode 1, by Asahi Tsukishita.
- July 22, 2017: Episode 2, by Yutori Houjou and Kako Mochizuki.
- July 23, 2017: Episode 3, by Azumi Mochizuki.
- July 29, 2017: Episode 4, by Yūichi Bessho.
It’s very interesting seeing how Universal is continuing the world of The Mummy, be it through mobile based games and now original manga. It’s interesting to say the least, and I’m certainly looking forward to reading “The Mummy: Dark Stories.” I would like to add that it would be a great extension of the brand if the “Dark Universe” and The Mummy were to be given a fully authorized comic book to explore more of the characters and world, especially to continue the story of Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton. Fingers crossed, we’ll get that. Until then, “The Mummy: Dark Stories” begins July 15th – this week!

As always, stay tuned to Universal Monsters Universe for the latest on “The Mummy” and the Universal Monsters Universe of films.
Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.
Thought safely entombed in a tomb deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient princess (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.
From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.
The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, from a script by Jon Spaihts, Dylan Kussman, and Christopher McQuarrie. The film stars Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Marwan Kenzari, Courtney B. Vance, Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella. The film is now playing in theaters everywhere.
