The Necklace Affair is considered one of the weaker of the Blake & Mortimer books with good reason: tedious, slow moving and rather dull, it has none of the readibility or visual appeal of Tintin, and proves once again what a genius Herge was.

Edgar Jacobs was in need of a ruthless editor to sharpen his stories and tighten both the actions and the drawing - but having said that, I would not be collecting his books if I didn't vakue his work. ( )
