If you love the claire ligne style of Hergé, and a slightly more adult thriller, then this is for you. The characters are well-drawn, in every sense, and the plot exciting. There is a lot more text than in the Tintin albums, but if you love to read as well as look at pictures, that shouldn't be a problem. I was delighted to discover Blake & Mortimer, and I will be collecting the rest of the series. ( )
