By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 21 Oct. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is the second volume of the adventures of Blake and Mortimer, a European comic-album series, though this particular story began as a serial in the first issue of the European ‘Herge’s Adventures of Tin-Tin’ comic book, which began publication in 1946. The main characters here are British, the head of MI5 and a top scientist respectively, and the story is set in the late 1940s. This particular story begins with a World War III in the late 1940s, as a mysterious Evil Yellow Empire based in Tibet sets out to conquer he world, and succeeds, with a lightning atomic war. Our two heroes escape from Britain with the plans for a secret weapon – the Swordfish – and make their way towards a secret base somewhere off the coast of British India (or the Middle East). They are pursued by Colonel Olrik, a mercenary officer in the employ of the Emperor. The first volume ended with the heroes cornered by Imperial troops in a village in (or near) Afghanistan. This volume sees them escape, with the help of a loyal Indian soldier, and make their way to the coast where the secret base is to be found. Professor Mortimer is captured, but he manages to hide the secret plans before he is taken prisoner. Captain Blake and Nasir are picked up by a British submarine and taken to the secret base. While Blake begins to organise a resistance movement and collect scientists and engineers to build the Swordfish once the plans are recovered, Nasir establishes contact with the imprisoned Professor, who finds that Olrik is getting worried about his position in the Tibetan empire…

This is an excellent old-fashioned adventure story, with superb “European” artwork, but slightly wordy dialogue.

My pupils like reading comics, and this album is good training. It is hard for teachers today to keep up the work at school. Comics are easy to diguest mentally and aspecially good for teenagers.

a very good book, however fairly complicated for children, the parents enjoyed it anyway! Look forward to the 3rd edition.
