BECAUSE IT'S THERE. George Herbert Leigh Mallory is said to have given this in reply to the question 'Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?' On his third expedition in June 1924, Mallory and his climbing partner, Andrew Irvine, disappeared on the North-East ridge during their ascent, having been sighted only a few hundred meters from the summit. In 1993, in a small Nepalese store, Makoto Fukamachi, photographer for a Japanese expedition to conquer Mount Everest, stumbles across an old camera - a Vest Pocket Autographic Kodak Special. Could it be Mallory's camera? Did it hold the secret of whether Mallory and Irvine made it to the summit almost three decades before Hillary? Taniguchi's realistic art and Baku's tireless script will take you to such heights that mountaineers only dream about.

Fanfare is continuing its commitment to publishing the award-winning graphic novels of Jiro Taniguchi with several new and notable releases. The Summit of the Gods is the latest offering from Taniguchi and is a 5-volume epic about the conquering of Mount Everest.

Originally serialized in Business Jump, a seinen (men's) manga magazine, Summit of the Gods (Kamigami no Itadaki) is beautifully drawn, intelligently-written manga that doesn't need guns or T&A to enthrall mature readers.
