Blake and Mortimer

Blake and Mortimer is a Belgian comics series created by Edgar P. Jacobs. Jacobs was one of the founding fathers of the European comics movement, through his collaborations with Hergé and the graphic novel Blake and Mortimer that made him famous.

Blake and Mortimer
Blake and Mortimer was one of the first series to appear in the Belgian comics magazine Tintin in 1946, and was subsequently published in book form by Les Editions du Lombard.
 
The main protagonists of the adventures are Philip Mortimer, a leading British scientist, and his friend Captain Francis Blake of MI5. The main antagonist is their sworn enemy, Colonel Olrik, who has appeared in all but one of the books. Their confrontations take them into the realms of detective investigation and science-fiction, dealing with such themes as time travel, Atlantis and espionage.
 
The books by Jacobs himself are generally set in the very period of their writing, but those authored by others after his death are explicitly set in the 1950s only.
 
Since the death of Jacobs in 1987 new books have being published by two separate teams of artists and writers. A television series based upon the series was produced in 1997, entitled Blake and Mortimer.
