‘George Mallory: Because It’s There’, A Comic About Pioneering British Mountain Climber George Mallory


“George Mallory : Because It’s There” is a comic by Zen Pencils (previously) cartoonist Gavin Augthan that illustrates an inspirational quote about Mount Everest by pioneering British mountain climber George Mallory.

People ask me, “what is the use of climbing Mount Everest?” And my answer must at once be, “it is of no use. There is not the slightest prospect of any gain whatsoever.”
