4.0 out of 5 stars Great album by B&M, 30 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Blake & Mortimer Vol.6: SOS Meteors (Adventures of Blake & Mortimer) (Paperback)
Originally written in 1959, in the height of the Cold War, SOS Meteors had Blake and Mortimer go to France to fight an evil organization that create huge mischief by altering Europe's weather patterns. One of the ranking members of this unnamed organization is Olrik; the leader is a mysterious general who seems modeled after the then Soviet leader Mikoyan and whose motives are never made totally clear but presumably has to do with letting the confusion help a Soviet invasion of Western Europe. This album is not among the very best of B&M, but is very worthwhile if you are a fan. Among the plus, great drawings (in the clear line style), a very fine 1950 atmosphere and an interesting plot, especially in the first half. Among the minus, there is too much written exposition in some of the strips making the narrative a bit awkward at parts (especially with all the pseudo scientific explanations). The ending also comes as a bit of a disappointment, as the narrative loses some steam at the end.
