Product Description

About the Author

Born of Edgar Pierre Jacobs' imagination during the post-WWII period, Professor Philip Mortimer, nuclear physicist, and Captain Francis Blake, dashing head of MI5, are legendary heroes of the 9th art. The author, a close relative of Herge, appreciated the exceptional and the astonishing that could be found within the scope of scientific invention; his heroes, very much ahead of their time, discover extraordinary objects and phenomena through their uncommon adventures. Before devoting himself exclusively to them, Jacobs collaborated with Herge and took part in the realization of Tintin in the Congo, Tintin in America, The Blue Lotus, King Ottokar's Sceptre, The Seven Crystal Balls, and Prisoners of the Sun.

Format: Paperback
The best Blake & Mortimer stories are better than even Tintin and are some of the best comics ever made.

"SOS Meteors" compares with the "Yellow M" on being the best of all Blake & Mortimer stories and some of the best comics ever made.
This is a fantastic story, enjoy it, you will love this comic and will read it again and again. You will get a great and sofisticated story, exictement, sci-fi, and as usual Mortimers fight against the villain Olrik.

Synopsis: very bad weather is causing chaos over much of western Europe. Professor Mortimer is called to France to help to try and solve the reasons - which turn out to be more than meteorological. When Mortimer gets to close to solving this mystery, he disappears, and Captain Blake comes over from England to look for his friend. He discovers the whole is a nefarious plot, headed by an old and familiar enemy...

First published in the Belgian 'Tintin' journal in 1958-9, this falls chronologically in between "the yellow M" and the not-yet-translated "mystery of Atlantis". The drawing is as good as ever, and very atmospheric in places; but the plot runs rather slowly, and could have been tighter. Still, for atmosphere, this is as good as "the yellow M", I would say!

Another great translation, the plot is a little hard to follow and the translation is occasionally annoying with it's odd americanisms, but the brilliant artwork more than makes up for it. Looking forward to the next one.

It's so nice to see these translations of EP Jacobs' classic comics. This one has Blake and Mortimer up against mad weather science and features great art work and a gripping story.
