I really want to like these books more than I do, but they're hamstringed by subsequent creators' adherence to the shortcomings of Edgar P. Jacobs' style: excessive text, cramped layouts and rudimentary characterisation. 'The Francis Blake Affair' actually promised an improvement on the original, but subsequent stories and creative teams have stuck more closely to the original, something that's lovingly iterated in the creator interviews in the back of the book. Still, what we have here is a ...more

Weapons of mass destruction
Die russische Rakete, die plötzlich notlanden muss, hat etwas aus dem All mitgebracht. Schon die ersten Hilfskräfte, ausgeschickt zur Bergung der Rakete, antworten plötzlich nicht mehr auf Funksprüche - und der russische Doktor Voronov erkennt schnell, dass sich hier eine einmalige Chance auf die Entwicklung einer neuartigen, tödlichen Waffe bietet...

Massenvernichtungswaffen sind ein beliebtes Thema in Kalter-Krieg-Geschichten. Die bösen Russen, die sich immer was einf

Like the previous Blake and Mortimer, The Francis Blake Affair, this has none of the pulp sci-fi found in other Blake and Mortimer books. However, it's an excellent cold war-era spy tale. A soviet rocket test goes awry, and the rocket crashes back to earth carrying a deadly bacteria from space -- a bacteria that may be used as a biological weapon against the West.

That's as sci-fi as it gets. The rest is a densely-packed tale of spies and counter-spies as Captain Blake heads undercover to retrie

Felt a little nostalgic for the Lille days. Wish I could still read Francais, bit it would take me a year to read this. It was fun. Not great. Next one I'll go back to the original Edgar P. Jacobs penned bds. When is Speilberg and Jackson going to make this movie?

Avevo grandi aspettative su questo volume e tutte sono state pienamente soddisfatte.
Un capolavoro ambientato nel posto giusto, nel tempo giusto. E finalmente un nuovo cattivo crudele, e più scaltro di Olrik (del quale poteva farne anche a meno).
Sarebbe da approfondire questa cosa di come Olrik sia sempre dappertutto e di come riesca sempre a salvarsi.
Unici punti deboli:

To my relief I liked this tale of Blake and Mortimer after being disappointed by The Yellow "M". The word balloons are less intrusive and the font decisions mean the text sits nicely within said word balloons. I then realized that "The Voronov Plot" is actually not one of the original stories written by Edgar P. Jacobs, but is in fact part of the revival of the characters from the late 90s/early 2000s. The art is great. The story is great. I now wonder if it's the new team of Sente and Juillard ...more

Decisamente una bella storia, molto virata sullo spionaggio e meno sulla fantascienza, ma un'ottima storia ben scritta e disegnata.

I recommend this book to people who love adventure stories. It's a graphic novel and the pictures make you feel as if you are in the story.
