5.0 out of 5 stars Really well drawn, 14 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blake & Mortimer Vol.3: The Mystery of the Great Pyramid: Mystery of the Great Pyramid Pt. 2 (Adventures of Blake & Mortimer) (Paperback)
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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Egyptian yarn!, 5 Nov 2012
This review is from: Blake & Mortimer Vol.3: The Mystery of the Great Pyramid: Mystery of the Great Pyramid Pt. 2 (Adventures of Blake & Mortimer) (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!
