Excellent book, I have been into Herge for years but have only just discovered Jacobs' work. It does lack the humour of Tintin but makes up for it in atmosphere

Format: Paperback
This is my latest visit to the world of Blake and Mortimer, courtesy of my local library system. This is a comic-album series which was originally a spin-off from Herge’s Adventures of Tin-Tin, but continued by subsequent creative teams, and new stories are still being produced today. The main characters are British - a top scientist and the head of MI5, who have known each other since they were young men - and the story is set in the mid 1950s. There are continuing minor sub-plots between some volumes, and characters and events from previous adventures are often referred to (or make reappearances).

This is the second half of a story, so a lot of plot has been set up there. However, despite not having read the first half, this was still an excellent read, as the little you need to know is explained as we go along. A secret map to a secret tomb of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh has been discovered, and former secret agent Colonel Olrik is out to loot it. Captain Blake was apparently assassinated in the previous volume, but as regular readers will remember, it won’t have been the first or last time. There is a lot of running around in 1950s Cairo, attempted assassinations and kidnappings, police sieges, and crawling around in secret passages under the Great Pyramid; not to mention secret treasure chambers and Egyptian priests who have handed down forbidden secrets from father to son across the centuries (and who are on the side of the good guys - this is not a Hollywood story). There is the usual amount of adventure, dashing exploits, people in disguise and stunning Mysteries of the Ancients that you would expect from this series - and Indiana Jones could certainly take some lessons from these stories.

This is an entertaining ‘period’ drama, expertly illustrated in the European style made familiar by the Adventures of Tintin, from which it is descended.

Format: Paperback
In the adventurous vein of Tintin, which is not surprising considering that the author & artist EP Jacobs was a long-time friend of Herge and collaborated with him on several of the Tintin volumes; with lots of plotting, double-dealing and twists. All of Jacobs' narratives are longer and don't quite 'flow' like Herge's Tintin adventures - who seemed to capture the essence of every scene with the wise use of a minimum number of words. Jacobs tends to provide long speech bubbles which sometimes have a hard time fitting into the scene, but do however still create atmosphere and suspense.

All in all a grand Egyptian treasure-hunting adventure with a bit of mysticism thrown in!

Wonderful, in spite of a slightly wonky translation. 7 Feb. 2010
By George M. Seminara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The highly satisfying conclusion of Blake and Mortimer's adventure, The Mystery of the Great Pyramid, Part 2. Suffers slightly from the translation which can be a bit confusing to young readers.However, that said, the art and story telling is top notch. Blake and Mortimer should be sitting on the shelf with Tintin and all the very best of European comics.
Another in this classic franco-belgium sf series 18 April 2012
By Michael R. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, after many years after Comcat put out a couple of B&M albums, someone is putting this series out in English. I've long heard about this series, but had never read it. It's great that they have, and I plan on getting all of them.

If there is one issue I have, it's that I wish they had reprinted them in their original order. As the the 2-part "Mystery of the Great Pyramid" comes BEFORE the Yellow Mark, its a little confusing to read them out of order. And it appears the 4th book Cinebooks is putting out is actually the thirteen story, and one NOT done by EP Jacobs!!!

I'd also love to see the Jacob's "U-Ray", the prototype standalone "flash gordon"-like story that served as a loose inspiration published as well.

As a two-parter, be sure to have the first volume to read before this, and read "The Yellow Mark" NEXT.

Lousy shipping for a great product 22 Jan. 2009
By Reads A Lot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the SECOND time I attempted to buy this item through Amazom.
The first time I ordered this item, it arrived DAMAGED.

So, the ever optimist that I am, I decided to order this item again for a Christmas prsent. Again, the item arrived DAMAGED.

It's a sad commentary you have to cross your figers and hope this item arrives UNDAMAGED. You're paying for a NEWS item and it arrives looking like something battered and used.
