The adventure of Blake and Mortimer and how much I enjoyed it. The stories were always a mix of sci fi and detective work. Most stories happens during WW2 or early fifties.
There are multiples things that I enjoy about these books. First of, the design of vehicle and other machines.
I also love that stereotypical arch enemy, Olrik. that always escapes and resurface in an other part of the world
I got some volume from my old book shelf and start reading them again. One thing I totally forgot is the amount of text!! Every single frame as a text explaining what you see.
We've always seen movie made from books and news story, then from american super heroes; we recently seen movies made from video game concept and soon some movies from european comic books. I would love to see someone make movies from the "blake and mortimer" stories.
respecting some of the design and 50's style.
