Behold, the drawing prowess of Edgar Pierre Jacobs, -French- Belgian comic book writer and illustrator in the 1950ies. Besides his own excellent series — Blake & Mortimer — of which (some of) the above covers are examples, Jacobs helped out Hergé with his Tintin series. So successfully in fact, that Hergé immortalized Jacobs on the cover of Cigars of the Pharaoh. Second mummy from the right portraits Jacobs, and says “E.P. Jacobini” on the coffin.

    Hello Joen… Just to precise that Blake and Mortimer are not french comic books but Belgian ones, even if they’re wrote in french 🙂
