A fascinating investigation on the most famous playwright in history!

In Venice, a boating accident leads to the discovery of a 400 year old text bearing the signature ‘W.S.’ and promising the truth about the ‘Shakespeare mystery’. That very night, someone tries unsuccessfully to steal the precious document. The discoverer, Marquis Stefano Da Spiri, decides to send a copy of the document to a specialist of the Bard in London for stylistic authentication. As for the original, he entrusts it to an old comrade in arms from WW2: Captain Francis Blake …

'... I heartily recommend it. There is an utterly charming officious Britishness in this Franco-Belgian comic book with carefully drawn and thought-out characters and situations. It is a bit like a more polite version of an Indiana Jones adventure, which in itself of course drew from the same source materials'. [JT Lindroos, Bookgasm]

Key Points:
  • A perfect contribution to the Shakespeare 2016 celebrations and a way to pay homage to the Bard
  • Published in English for the first time
  • Suitable for children and adults alike
  • Blake and Mortimer are legendary graphic novel heroes, with more than 12 million volumes sold worldwide
  • Their adventures, originally published in Tintin magazine, share many characteristics with Hergé's hero, who is the subject of Steven Spielberg's film.

André Juillard is a celebrated artist with a career spanning more than 35 years. He has worked on famous series such as Les Sept Vies de L’Epervier and Masquerouge and obtained the Grand Prix at the Angoulême festival in 1996. Yves Sente began writing scripts in 1999 and has already acquired considerable clout, being chosen as successor to Van Hamme for the series Thorgal and the sequel to XIII and working with Van Hamme on Blake & Mortimer.
