Actually, Cinebook seem to be fast becoming the unofficial English-language publisher of Jean Van Hamme.

To quote myself (two years to the day later) they're now scheduling 'Wayne Shelton' for next June. At this rate they're going to run out...!

The newest Cinebook Blake & Mortimer has just been published

At the risk of turning this thread into a conversation with myself ("How are you my dear boy?" "Very well my dear old thing"*) the latest Cinebook Blake and Mortimer has just be released - part 2 of the Secret of the Swordfish - and it reveals the 2014 publication schedule.

Only two volumes the roster: First the Oath of the Five Lords (the recent Sente/Julliard album); followed by the Time Trap. That just leaves Professor Sato's Three Formulas for 2015 after which they will have to fall in line with any future European publications.

Thanks for the update, by the way - I'm sure we all appreciate it (albeit quietly)!

I was thinking of getting into Blake & Mortimer, and purchasing the English publications.
However, Cinebook isn't publishing them in order of timeline (at least I think not) nor in original order of release.
If anyone knows the correct timeline of B&M, or the correct order to read them in, it would be much appreciated.
And do Cinebook change any artwork or dialogue for the sake of censorship or other purposes?
For example, are any particularly racist or offensive parts of the books removed or changed?

As far as I know, nothing is removed or changed.

For a timeline and list of titles, check out Wikipedia

I wouldn't worry too much about a timeline as the stories can be read in almost any order without that throwing up any paradoxes - much like Tintin.

In fact I would strongly advise that you don't start with the oldest albums as that may sour your taste for the later and better ones - much like Tintin.

I always found "Secret of the Swordfish" and "Mystery of the Great Pyramid" well drawn and written and having great pace. Calculite and others might enjoy them and certain events in "Yellow M" are dependent on knowing what happened in "Great Pyramid".

Actually, it is the post-Jacobs stories that I have misgivings about. After buying the first three books ("Francis Blake Affair", "Voronov Plot" and "Strange Encounter"), I have hesitated in buying the next few.

I would recommend reading the series in order.

I read The Yellow "M" some time before I read any other B&M, and like George I think that's a far better place to start than Swordfish (as I said before elsewhere).

I didn't read Tintin in any particular order, and it doesn't seem to have diminished my experience!

I just got a 1987 copy of The Secret of The Swordfish Volume 2 and there's a blank speech bubble on page 13, panel 7. If you have the Cinebook version please could you let me know what Blake replies when Mortimer says

"Unfortunately we can't delay here. We absolutely have to be down there before the tide. Clench your teeth. I am going to bind up your ankle."

I do not have the Cinebook version, but in the original French, Blake is essentially saying: "Do it, old boy, hurry and let's go..."
