My favorite Everest issue was the Grofe Atlantic Crossing...not exactly
great art, but when Everest issued it (a London release orignally as I
recall) it was pitched at least one or two half steps high...making the
narrator sound a bit sillier than even the original...kinda like Manhattan
Tower meets the Titanic.
