Written by Philip Pullman and originally serialised in The Phoenix Comic and illustrated by Fred Fordham, ‘The Adventures of John Blake’ is a high-octane, twisting, time-travelling tale of adventure on the high seas – in a graphic novel format.
At the centre of the adventure is a mysterious ghost ship, the Mary Alice, crewed by men from ancient Rome, the seventeenth century and the present. I read it over half-term and really enjoyed it. Fred Fordham’s art work is fabulous.
