The Adventures of Blake and Mortimer : Atlantis Mystery v. 12 Paperback
Illustrated by Edgar P. Jacobs
Deep under Sao Miguel island, rumoured to be the last emerging part of Atlantis, Professor Mortimer has discovered samples of a mysterious radioactive metal.
Could it be the Atlanteans' legendary orichalcum? When he and his friend Blake set out on an expedition into the depths to find out, sabotage occurs in the form of their old opponent Olrik. And soon, all three will be embroiled in a power struggle far bigger in scope than they could have imagined.

Review by Michael.Rimmer
One of Jacobs's original stories, which combines a bit of Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea with a bit of Burroughs's Caspak, and a leavening of Flash Gordon, Quatermass and Bulldog Drummond to produce something of his own.There's too much action going on for much characterisation, but that's what these older stories are all about. Some great artwork, nifty sci-fi gadgets, and the inevitable Colonel Olrik keep it all moving along nicely.
