Format: Paperback
This is my second visit to the world of Blake and Mortimer, a comic-album series which was originally a spin-off from Herge’s Adventures of Tin-Tin, but continued by a subsequent creative team. The main characters are British, and the story is set in the late 1950s. There appear to be continuing sub-plots between volumes, and many characters from previous adventures make appearances here, in a story set in the environs of the International Exposition in Brussels in 1958. This is an interesting adventure, which begins in modern(!) India, as a conspiracy of Indian princes is investigated by the authorities. The main character among the conspirators claims to be the Emperor Ashoka, returned from the dead, with mysterious powers and advanced scientific knowledge. It turns out that he hates Professor Mortimer for some reason; and we than get a long flashback to the young Mortimer’s return to British India from school for a visit with his parents who are based in Simla. On his way home, he meets and helps the young Blake, also on a visit to his own parents. Young Mortimer finds that his childhood Indian friend is now a firm supporter of the independence movement, and has gone his own way, though he remains at least civil to his old friend. He takes Mortimer to hear a speaker for the independence movement, who claims to be the Emperor Ashoka, returned from the dead… and who happens to have a daughter who Mortimer strikes up a friendship with.Read more ›

Blake & Mortimer were created by Edgar P Jacobs, who worked with Herge on the Tintin adventures. His stories are told with the same clean line graphics and are beautifully illustrated.

This is a modern story, not drawn by Jacobs, but still faithfully reflecting his original attention to period detail and the same insatiable and indefatigable heroes.

Great fun and far better than any of the modern computer-generated pulp.

These are gradually being translated from the original french by Cinebook and I can't wait for "The Secret of the Swordfish" and for the sequel of "The Curse of the 30 Pieces of Silver"

I have a big part of the Blake and Mortimer stories and I like them very much. However this is not the best one.
This is the only one where we can meet our 2 main protagonists when they were young.
This is the only one I know where there is a woman who has an important role in Mortimer's life.
And somehow these things spoil the experience I usually have with them.

For me this is something out of the space of Blake and Mortimer.

However the whole story is enjoyable and the quality of drawings are as usual, but I don't like it.

Another in the Blake & Mortimer series by those who followed its creator 19 July 2011
By Michael R. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another Blake & Mortimer album. Set in the 1950s, this is the first of a two part storyline combining political intrege, science fiction, and background on Professor Mortimer.

While published as the 9th volume, its actually the 16th. It's the second album by the 'second team' doing albums after the death of B&M creator EP Jacobs. It's by Yves Sente & Andre Juillard. Cinebooks is publishing their 3 other albums this year.

As noted, this is the first of a two part story. As the next part is out, I advice getting them together. There are some things that follow from the previous album by this creative team, "the Voronov Plot", and I understand their other album, "The Gondwana Shrine", is a sort of follow-on to the storyline in this 2-part. It will be published later this year.

This album also gives some background information on Professor Mortimer, which impacts on the main story. We learn how he mets Capt Blake while the two are in Indian visiting their families before going off to college (Mortimer) or entering the military service (Blake). Mortimer also met the individual who will be the main villian in this 2-parter, who blames Mortimer for the death of his daughter.

The main story is set in the 'present' of 1958 at the "worlds fair" in Brussels. A backdrop to this are the several nations (in the third world) who want to throw off the yoke of colonial domination. The main villian will use that as support for some new super-weapon, as well as making use of Col Orlik (released from prison as shown in the prior albums). Orlik is thus not the main villian, but another pawn.

Overall, a great story, but let's see how part 2 works out.

Very well written. Follows in the style of the original author. Anybody who grew up on reading the Adventures of Tintin will enjoy this series of adventures.
