Everest comics
« on: Feb 26 2004, 13:17 »

There is a series of Everest comics coming out soon:
In August of this year Oni Press will release "Everest: Facing the Goddess," a twelve-issue maxi series written by Greg Rucka with art by Scott Morse. Each issue will contain 32 pages of story with no ads. CBR News spoke with Rucka to learn more about the series and the challenges faced by the Rucka/Morse expedition as they climb the mountain on the printed page.

"Everest: Facing the Goddess" follows an expedition to summit the mountain, but it's not quite that simple. It never is with Everest. The Sherpas, the guides who lead the expeditions up the mountain, tell climbers that when attempting to summit Everest you must come "pure" to the mountain. You don't conquer or attack it, you treat the mountain with respect and come open and willingly. Rucka pointed out that it's believed the reason why Tenzing Norgay was able to summit with Hillary was because his relationship with the mountain was always one of love and for many people, this is still the case. Now that you, the reader, understand the relationship a climber must have with the mountain, we feel it's now time to tell you a bit more about the book.
