Review: Blake & Mortimer Vol. 7 The Affair of the Necklace

Blake & Mortimer Vol. 7 The Affair of the Necklace

There is no historical figure in France more celebrated and vilified than Marie Antoinette. The words that have made her so infamous to so many has become known only in recent years that she never uttered them. It was during her tenure that the French Revolution took root and crushed the monarchy finally.

Over time, monarchies like hers fell eventually but what people of that time did not count on was the romanticizing of those figures throughout history. The film by Sofia Coppola both dispelled myth and gave viewers even ore insight into this legend while doing one thing most historical pictures haven’t done, make her hip. The world got another chance to fall in love with her again. In the seventh volume of Blake & Mortimer our intrepid heroes became entangled with her legend while facing an old foe.

Our dynamic duo show up in Paris, the city is buzzing with news of the impending nuptials of two royals, and quite a crown jewel being offered. They show up to a pre-wedding party for the monarchy, a few mysterious occurrences take place, leading to the theft of Marie Antoinette’s necklace, by their old nemesis, Olrik. He makes it difficult for the two to find, even using local gangsters to stop them in their tracks. Their search leads to Paris’s underground where Olrik’s man, Sharkey apprehended by the police, leads them and where they find out that their old enemy is hiding more than that necklace.

Overall, the seventh volume is an entertaining adventure which has the guys mixed in with gangsters, history, and royalty. The story by Edgar P. Jacobs is dense, smart, and gripping, The art by Jacobs is vivid and fluid. Altogether, one of the better adventures from this series.
