  Blake and Mortimer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blake and Mortimer is a comic book/graphic novel series that was created by the Belgian writer and artist Edgar P. Jacobs (1904-1987).
Blake is the straight man, the serious army officer who comes to the rescue.
Blake and Mortimer are sometimes shown to live in the same house, sharing an apartment as unmarried gentlemen were wont to do (Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson did the same).

Blake is the epitome of the phlegmatic Brit - still a very popular cliché on this side of the Channel - careful, patient, with an utter lack of outward emotion and always dependable when you need to get rid of a crazed megalomaniac bent on world domination.
Created by a close collaborator of Tintin creator Hergé, Blake and Mortimer were the brainchild of the very English-sounding Edgar P Jacobs, a Belgian baritone who quit the opera houses during the second world war to make a living as an illustrator.
Only a dozen Blake and Mortimer books were published before he died in 1987, but they proved so popular that a new team of artists and writers was put together in 1996 to resurrect the characters.

 Edgar Pierre Jacobs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was one of the founding fathers of the European comics movement, through his collaborations with Hergé and the graphic novel series that made him famous, Blake and Mortimer.
Hergé also gave him tiny cameo roles in Tintin adventures, sometimes under the name Jacobini, for example in The Calculus Affair where Jacobini is the name of an opera singer advertised as starring alongside La Castafiore in Gounod's Faust, and as a mummified egyptologist on the cover of Cigars of the Pharaoh.
In 1946, he was part of team gathered around the new Journal of Tintin magazine, where his comic strip The Secret of the Swordfish was published, the first of the Blake and Mortimer series.

In these, Blake is listed as being between the wide-ranging ages of 20 and 45 years old and described as “tall, and dashingly handsome.” This quintessential British adventurer/agent has the ranking of 001 in the British Secret Service and occasionally helps Ian Fleming with story ideas.
Mortimer is also given a quarter-decade’s age range, with 30 years old being the low end.
Recently widowed of his poet wife, Mortimer is perhaps a bit brainier than Blake, but every bit as capable in the brawn category.

 Review, buy Blake's 7: Blake's 7, the Radio Adventures With the Sevenfold Crown and the Syndeton, Blake et Mortimer, ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Blake's 7, Terry Nation's science-fiction tale of cosmic freedom fighters, became a hit series in Great Britain when it premiered in 1978.
From its first appearance in 1978 to its final episode in 1981, Blake's 7 was a series which pushed back the boundaries of what was possible in TV science fiction.
Despite the attempts made by critics over the years to deride it for its low-budget special effects, sometimes-dubious costume design and overly middle-class casting, Blake's 7 continues to remain popular and to gain new audiences, due to its intelligent treatment of powerful themes of human evil, rebellion, love and death.
