Eight hours in Berlin is the title of the twenty-ninth volume of the adventures of Blake and Mortimer, released in bookstores on November 25th. In this new opus, a nod is made to the work of Hergé.

Tintinophiles and informed readers will certainly have noticed, several references are made to the adventures of the young reporter. Indeed, it is impossible not to think of The Calculus Affair when seeing the scenes of espionage that lead the two Jacobsian heroes to Geneva. In particular when a car falls into the waters of Lake Geneva. A scene that inevitably evokes the immersion reserved for the cab taking Tintin and Captain Haddock towards Nyon, on the trail of their missing friend.
Following in the footsteps of the previous revivals, this new episode of Blake and Mortimer was not well received by the critics. Several articles published in the press in the last few days underline its suspicious character because, in wanting to pay too much homage to Jacobs, its authors would have forced the line by awkwardly taking back the ingredients which made the success of the saga. But even more surprisingly, they have also taken on board elements gleaned "here and there" from the universes of other great names in Franco-Belgian comics, including Hergé. A mixture of genres that distorts the work and its original spirit. One of the reasons why there won’t be any new Tintin adventures.
