Start your review of Les Sarcophages du 6e continent - 1 Blake et Mortimer, This made this volume of the Adventures of Blake and Mortimer for me a surprise but welcome discovery for me. This volume may not be authored or drawn by Edgar P. It is unfortunate that my first exposure to this series came on a volume not worked on by Jacobs; I would have loved to read one of the Jacobs produced albums.
View 1 comment. Another entry on my plan to re-read the Post Edgar P. I am quite sure they will start to include the originals as well, which have been read by my so often I had to find some new copies that were not in tatters.
I love the Ligne Claire style of the Jacobs created series, I actually prefer this series to one of the greats of Ligne Claire style called the adventures of Tintin by Herge. This comic takes place in and is currently a sequel to the Voronov Plot ther Another entry on my plan to re-read the Post Edgar P.
This comic takes place in and is currently a sequel to the Voronov Plot there is always the possibility a new adventure gets plotted between these comics. Anyhow this new adventure is the first installment of a two book episode which is kinda faithful to the double of triple episodes are created by Jacobs. Anyhow this first episode tells us the much wanted part of how Blake met Mortimer in the first place and it is a very neat affair very well scripted in the Colonial past of the British empire were Mortimer visits his parents and meets Blake and both young men have an instant report.
It also tells the tale how Mortimer met the apparent major Baddie from the story in his young years and how he somehow wronged the Emperor Asoka. The other part of the story takes place in the World exposition in Brussels Belgium and some strange sabotage takes place and endangers Mortimer especially at the same time Blake is investigating a plot by extremists to embarrass the colonial powers or do even worse.
While the story is actually firing on all cilinders is is mostly a warming up for the second part of the story which will undoubtedly takes place on Antarctica and will have the presence of their house baddie Olrik, even if he is not doing to well so far after his misadventures with the Voronov Affair. The continuation season is doing well by this time which is mostly due to the faithful writers and illustrators of the new series and they seem to love the characters as much as the fans are enjoying the new adventures.
They still prove that the readers of these comics are still not against reading instead of watching nice pictures, and they are really good looking. Only three stars as this is the prequel to the story, I might reconsider the rating as I finish the second part. Dec 21, Helmut rated it really liked it Shelves: comics. Ich mochte den Anfang sehr gerne, aber trotz der sympathischen Zeichnungen fiel es mir schwer, die Story bis zum Ende mit Interesse zu verfolgen.
Ich werde den Band irgendwann noch einmal lesen einen vergeblichen Anlauf habe ich schon hinter mir und dann entscheiden, ob er zwei oder vier Sterne verdient :. Here the authors have started to show elements of portraying a main character Mortimer with a guilt complex due to a tragic past while he lived in colonial India.
It is very revealing as showing the mindset of white people's supposed superiority over their colonies almost amounting to racist prejudices. I can't say I really enjoyed this book so much. This is a two volume adventure so will give the review to cover both books here. The sarcophagi are a bizarre invention of someone who wants to t Here the authors have started to show elements of portraying a main character Mortimer with a guilt complex due to a tragic past while he lived in colonial India.
The sarcophagi are a bizarre invention of someone who wants to take their revenge on Mortimer's past in India beyond the grave. There is quite a bit of detail and action but the whole account is pretty weird. Eerste deel van de sarcofagen van het 6e continent. Goed verhaal, maar wat te druk. Het verhaal speelt zich af na het Voronov-complot en het eerste deel speelt zich voornamelijk af in Brussel ten tijde van Expo 58 hoofdverhaal en deels in India flashback over hoe Blake en Mortimer elkaar hebben leren kennen.
Stylistically this is reminiscent of a Tintin story. The action, however, is unsoftened by humour and the dialogue comes unrefined from the information dump.

Pas un de mes preferes j'aime mieux quand il y a un peu plus de science fiction mais j'ai bien aime le flash back sur un peu de la jeunesse de Mortimer en Inde. I've never been a big fan of Blake and Mortimer, reading the original albums as a kid but preferring the more easy going Tintin and of course my all time favourite Spirou and Fantasio.
Seeing that there is a new production of Blake and Mortimer albums and that they, when they are published, often outsell just about everything else on the French-Belgian comics market the latest album sold in excess of copies!
I started with this book as it was easily available in my to-read shelf in a Danish translation. The choice turned out to be a lucky one, as this album comprises among other things an origin story for Mortimer, including the fateful first meting with Blake.
All this is done in good taste, but as I am not well-read on the canon of Blake and Mortimer, I can't tell if this is a retcon or if it's consistent with the earlier stories. As everything else looks like the writer and artist have tried their best to be faithful to the original series, I suppose the latter.
If it is, it's remarkable that it took 16 albums to get to the point of telling how these two heroes met. The story is well written, though wordy, just as I remembered the Blake and Mortimer albums of my youth. If you take the time to actually read all the captions and somewhat lengthy speech balloons it is a good story, though. And Sente and Juillard have, thankfully gotten rid of Jacobs' tradition of writing in the captions a description of what was shown in the image, and often having a character state it a third time, just to make sure.
I also like the idea of incorporating the World fair of Brussels in , again strange that it took 16 albums to get there, as the Atomium building launched then and there is the most iconic building of the era in Belgium. As this is only part one of two, I'll wait with the final verdict until I've read the next volume, but so far I'm pleasantly surprised and have actually take stock of my Blake and Mortimer collection to see what holes I need to fill, in order to read all the albums chronologically.
Feb 24, Sylvia rated it really liked it Shelves: french-books , stripboeken-comics , challenge I love the comic books stripverhalen with Blake and Mortimer. This one is inspired by the original series of P. Jacobs and the drawings and the plot are good.
A nice part is that the reading becomes aquainted with the young Philip Mortimer and his friend Francis Blake. This part plays in India before the independence. Halfway the story jumps to a more recent time: the World Exhibition of in Brussels. The symbol of this exhibition, now more than 50 years ago, still stands: the Atomium. I I love the comic books stripverhalen with Blake and Mortimer. I bought this book and its sequel during a visit in Brussels. It's in French and a bit difficult for me to read, as my French isn't first class, but the essences of the story is clear to me.
Per il resto un albo che conferma la serie come miglior scoperta del Una buona avventura, con l'ampio flashback e la nascita dell'amicizia tra i due coprotagonisti.
Dec 14, Rumagoso added it. Great by recreating the universal expo. Good to see Olrik back. Also loved the story about how Francis and Mortimer first met in India. It has it all
