Murder On Mount Everest: High Crimes To Be Collected By Image
by Olly MacNamee
Writer Christopher Sebela (Crowded, House Amok) and artist Ibrahim Moustafa (Jaeger, Mother Panic, James Bond) will see their Eisner-nominated series, High Crimes, collected and released as a trade paperback this February from Image Comics.
Artist and co-creator, Moustafa states that, “Making High Crimes was one hell of a climb, and I’m absolutely thrilled that we’re going to be able to share it with more readers via the Image banner.”
“High Crimes is responsible for my whole career,” adds Sebela. “Born from years of obsession with Everest and a last-ditch attempt to make the only book I cared about making, it came out so much better than I ever could have imagined, and I’m excited to share it with a whole new audience.”
People die every year on Mount Everest. This year will be murder.
Zan Jensen works as a climbing guide for rich tourists in Kathmandu. And on the side, she and her partner Haskell moonlight as high-altitude graverobbers, extorting money from the families of the many dead bodies that litter the peaks of the Himalayas. But when they find a body with a jackpot of state secrets embedded in its skin at the summit of Mount Everest, they wind up in the crosshairs of a government agency bent on recovering the body—and eliminating any witnesses.
High Crimes TPB will be out February 20th from Image Comics.
