Comment

Authentique morceau du mythe...
un moment important: Blake vient de sentir dans la doublure du manteau du taxi le livre "the mega wave" que Mortimer a oublié dans le Taxi. Grâce à l'inscription qui y figure, Blake aura la révélation du coupable...
La case fut écartée du remontage effectué pour raccourcir l'histoire pour l'éditeur italien. Ensuite, quand il a fallu refaire des films pour les ré-éditions normales (notamment celle de l'édition courante), ces cases ont bien sûr été remises en place dans la maquette. Cette case par exemple figure bien dans l'édition courante, au bas de la planche 60.

About Edgar Pierre Jacobs

Edgar Pierre Jacobs is one of the masters of Belgian comics, despite his small body of work. His signature series, 'Blake and Mortimer' (1946), only counts 11 albums by his own hand. Together with just one other stand-alone comic book, 'Le Rayon U' (1943), they form his entire oeuvre. All his other artwork was done in function of Hergé's 'Tintin' series, for which he contributed backgrounds, colouring and occasional plot suggestions in the mid 1940s. Yet all his comics are unanimously regarded as masterpieces of European comic book art. 'Blake and Mortimer' follows the suspenseful adventures of two Englishmen, a secret agent and a scientist. The duo gets involved in all kinds of atmospheric mystery thrillers with more fantastical elements like mad science, mind control, time travel, UFO's, Atlantis and the Third World War. A notorious perfectionist, Jacobs spent months preparing himself for each story. Every drawing and every plot element had to be realistic and believable. His obsessive research, beautifully detailed art work and suspenseful narratives made his comics timeless classics. One of them, 'Le Marque Jaune' ('The Yellow "M" ', 1954) has risen to iconic status in the Franco-Belgian comics scene. Text (c) Lambiek
