Blake and Mortimer were created by Edgar P. Jacobs and the dynamic duo originally debuted in Herges Tintin Magazine before graduating on to their own twelve book series. While the rest of the world waits with baited breath, as a precursor to Sputnik the Soviets launch an experimental rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
The launch appears to have gone well, but just minutes after take-off the rocket encounters a shower of meteorites and, heavily damaged after the collision, crashes back down to Earth.
General Ufa, the military overseer of the rocket project, dispatches soldiers to recover the remains of the rocket, but it quickly becomes clear that more than just rocket debris has been returned to Earth. All of those sent to recover the rocket soon die of severe internal haemorrhages, causing Professor Ilyushin, the scientist who designed the rocket, to speculate that it must have picked up some kind of deadly intergalactic bacteria during its brief time in space.
However, Voronov has ideas of his own about how the bacteria should be used and, aided by the dastardly Colonel Olrik, he plans to turn the bacteria into a biological weapon that can be used against the West. Jacobs himself. The use of intergalactic bacteria in an otherwise fairly straightforward spy story is just the kind of thing that Jacobs would do. The central plot is highly politicised and there is a great deal of complex intrigue and dubious double-crossing to be followed.
However, despite these complexities, The Voronov Plot still manages to speed along at a cracking pace and is, at heart, a rip-roaring s pulp adventure.
