EP Jacobs would be pleased.,
This review is from: BLAKE & MORTIMER: THE MYSTERY OF THE GREAT PYRAMID VOL.1: Mystery of the Great Pyramid Pt. 1 (Adventures of Blake & Mortimer) (Paperback)
I'm so glad Cinebook started issuing the Blake & Mortimer books in English. These books are great, old-fashioned adventure stories, carefully thought out and rich in detail. The Mystery of the Great Pyramid is an intricate mix of police procedural drama and supernatural themes in a fantastic setting. The translation by Clarence Holland is smooth and captures the mood of the time in which these books are set.

Nicely written review! I would only add that Cinebook updated the Holland translation and made it smoother for English readers.
Cinebook has published 3 more Blake & Mortimer titles and is releasing another later this year. They also have several series for children as well as adults.
