Some of you know that Bob De Moor finished Edgar P. Jacobs’ last album; Mortimer vs Mortimer. Jacques Martin, known for Alex and Lefranc, also applied to draw the comic. He drew the first page, but considered it was better that Bob De Moor did the job he left the page unfinished.
The second image is Bob De Moor’s version, the third is Edgar P. Jacobs’ pencil work.

As guessed by MisledHobbit: it’s a take on the Blake & Mortimer comic book “The Yellow M” by Edgar P. Jacobs. Comics are the 9th art, right?
The inks were a lot of fun.
One of the better crossovers I’ve seen, in my opinion.
First of all, I apologize for the lack of updates. Life is busy.
Secondly, thank you to the latest follower; arnaud-m.
And lastly, I have enabled submissions. So if any of you find anything interesting/beautiful/… related to Blake and Mortimer, don’t hesitate to submit it!
A cover, drawn by Ted Benoit. The story was supposed to take place after the events of “Le Secret de l’Espadon”, but it was never used.
