By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 11 Nov. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is my latest visit to the world of Blake and Mortimer, courtesy of my local library system. This is a comic-album series which was originally a spin-off from Herge’s Adventures of Tin-Tin, but continued by subsequent creative teams. The main characters are British, and the story is set in the mid 1950s. There are continuing minor sub-plots between some volumes, and characters and events from previous adventures are often referred to (or make reappearances). This story opens in 1919 as a traveller in Reading Station is intercepted by MI5 agents and his manuscript confiscated for being Communist propaganda intended to destabilise the British Empire. The traveller is T.E. Lawrence, and the manuscript is of his book ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’.

Thirty-five years later, someone is hunting for that missing manuscript: objects are being stolen from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, where Professor Mortimer is due to arrive for a lecture; several ‘Lords’ are being attacked, who were formerly involved with MI5, bringing Colonel Blake, who knew them all, to investigate, and the two strands of the story eventually merge as we discover the truth behind the assassination of Lawrence of Arabia…

This is an excellent period adventure/spy story in the vein of Ian Fleming and the earlier James Bond novels, and even though it is by one of the modern creative teams, it gets in a lot of period details – I have a copy of the locomotive print shown over the bar in the 1919 Reading Station. This time it is the turn of Colonel Blake to reveal some of his early life to us – having seen Professor Mortimer’s in the Blake & Mortimer Vol.9: The Sarcophagi of the Sixth Continent - Part 1 (Adventures of Blake & Mortimer).

I love Blake and Mortimer, own all the comic books and the animated TV Series. This volume however, deals with real historic facts and is somehow lost in the plot. My least favorite thus far in the series.
