I just finished a chapter where Messner goes into the mythological aspect of the yeti myth, the sightings of the actual creature and the finding of numerous foot prints, and I have to admit, I´m really enjoying this book so far.
Even though I don´t get why Messner becomes so obsessed with the yeti in the first place (he himself doesn´t give a proper explanation either). And he is slightly obsessed I think, as shown during his first meeting with his girlfriend Sabine after the yeti incident (he thinks she has left him during his treck through Tibet):
Seeing Sabine was more a shock than a relief. I stood, silent and apprehensive. She also just stood there, staring at me. I couldn´t think straight. After all the excitement, the anticipation, the hope and fear, the dread of not finding her, I was too bewildered to embrace her. I was still so obsessed by the thought that she might have left forever that I was incapable of even asking how she was.
"I saw a Yeti", I blurted out suddenly, breaking the silence.
Ewing is okay sometimes, but of course he's going to bring Black Bolt's wives back in because that wasn't weird enough the first time around.
Black Bolt? So much better than this series. But I expect they'll converge at some point and I'm too into the Inhumans in Spaaaaace concept to give up on this yet. Also, I have at least a couple issues I already bought that are unreturnable.
Also, this would be way better with pig-muppets in my opinion.
