Blake et Mortimer
Art: Edgar Pierre Jacobs
Script: Edgar Pierre Jacobs
Color: Luce Daniels, Philippe Biermé
Born of Edgar Pierre Jacobs' imagination during the post-WWII period, Professor Philip Mortimer, nuclear physicist, and Captain Francis Blake, dashing head of MI5, are legendary heroes of the 9th art. The author, a close relative of HergÃ©, appreciated the excessive and the astonishing that could be found within the scope of scientific invention; his heroes, very much ahead of their time, discover extraordinary objects and phenomena through their uncommon adventures. Before devoting himself exclusively to them, Edgar Pierre Jacobs collaborated with HergÃ© and took part in the realization of âTintin in the Congo", âTintin in America", âThe Blue Lotus", âKing Ottokar's Sceptre", "The Seven Crystal Balls", and the "Prisoners of the Sun".
