The Summit of the Gods

In Kathmandu, the Japanese reporter Fukamachi thinks he recognises Habu Joji, a mountaineer thought to have disappeared years ago. Joji holds a camera in his hands that could change the history of mountaineering.

What if George Mallory and Andrew Irvine were the first men to reach the top of Everest on 8 June 1924? Only the little Vest Pocket Kodak with which they were to photograph themselves on the roof of the world could reveal the truth. Seventy years on, in an attempt to solve this mystery, Fukamachi sets out on Habu’s trail.

A highly inventive adaptation of the manga by Jiro Taniguchi and Baku Yumemakura.
