3.5 stars for climate change with a difference!

Synopsis: very bad weather is causing chaos over much of western Europe. Professor Mortimer is called to France to help to try and solve the reasons - which turn out to be more than meteorological. When Mortimer gets to close to solving this mystery, he disappears, and Captain Blake comes over from England to look for his friend. He discovers the whole is a nefarious plot, headed by an old and familiar enemy...
First published in the Belgian 'Tintin' journal in 1958-9, this falls chronologically in between "the yellow M" and the not-yet-translated "mystery of Atlantis". The drawing is as good as ever, and very atmospheric in places; but the plot runs rather slowly, and could have been tighter. Still, for atmosphere, this is as good as "the yellow M", I would say!
