Blake and Mortimer

So british since 1946

This European comic book bestseller has acquired legendary status, setting the standard for quality popular comics. Its author, E.P. Jacobs, had a love of excess that was best articulated through his scientific inventions, which included his ingenious supersonic plane/submarine, the Espadon.

Following the death of E.P. Jacobs, Editions Blake & Mortimer was taken over by Dargaud, which commissioned new comic books and developed the brand.

The appeal of the Blake & Mortiner series is as strong as ever. From  L'Affaire Francis Blake, to La Machination Voronov, L’Etrange Rendez-Vous, La Malédiction des trente deniers , the titles have all enjoyed unprecedented success, with each rising to No. 1 on the bestseller lists (all genres combined).
