Gute Feinde kann niemand trennen, Teil 2
In Teil 2 meiner Zwillingsrezension (Teil 1 ist hier verfügbar) geht es um die unzertrennliche Verknüpfung von gut und böse - ein Held braucht einen Gegner, je moralischer, besser, strahlender der Held ist, umso perverser, brutaler, böser muss der Gegenspieler sein. Er ist die Folie, auf der sich der "Held" projizieren kann.

Ich verrate nicht zuviel, wenn ich erzähle, dass Olrik wieder mal mit von der Partie ist. Vielleicht ist es ein Naturgesetz, das ihn

This one's a bit of an "everything but the kitchen sink" story that, at times, feels like Blake and Mortimer stuck in an X-Files episode. (I mean that to be a good thing.)

Ecco una storia di Blake e Mortimer che non mi convince del tutto.

Inoltre l'idea della luce come la intende l'autore è un poco troppo fuori dai canoni.

The book was exciting and thrilling, the pictures/ drawings were gorgeous and the storyline was amazing. The Adventures Of Blake and Mortimer series really reminds me of the Tintin series.

Un gran bel numero, ambientazione e temi azzeccati e il tema viene sviluppato alla perfezione (non come in "L'onda Septimus").
