However, this new interest propels the Captain and Tintin toward the mysterious deaths of several art experts. The second half of the mystery involves a mystic, Endaddine Akass, who has charmed both the beautiful young art gallery assistant, and La Castafiore herself.
This mysterious man reminds Tintin of someone, but he can't quite tell who. The scenes at Akass' ritual are genuinely unnerving, and it's clear that Tintin has met his match in this seemingly placid villain. As the two cases begin to wind together, Haddock and Tintin find themselves travelling to an island of Naples, where Akass' friends have gathered - among them are many characters who have populated earlier works in the series.
Even more so than "Picaros", there is a distinct sense of a final recap here It is only when Tintin puts the pieces together - that Akass is flooding the art market with fakes while raising his own profile with the help of the 'Alph-Art' movement - that the boy reporter is caught, and led to his likely death The official release of "Alph-Art" is a beautiful volume, doing the best they can with Herge's pencil rough sketches of the story.
There's a lot to learn here, seeing how the latter pages - much rougher than the earlier ones - still are clearly numbered, and it seems likely that this is roughly the pattern the first two-thirds of the work would've taken. It fits the usual Tintin album profile, with one-third devoted over to the mystery, the second to a chase sequence, and then the third to the denouement.
While the story itself is nothing breathtaking, the more 'mature' choice of setting is most satisfying for those of us who grew up with Tintin, and are now grown-up ourselves. Beyond this, Herge's style still seems to be maturing: Haddock is still off alcohol after the events of the previous story, for instance.
Most interestingly, for me, there are several strong female characters - a first for a "Tintin" album. Beyond La Castafiore, there are the two art gallery staff members - one of whom is crucial to the case, and a young, beautiful woman for once. Then Castafiore's friend Angelina, although she appears rarely, maeks quite an impact. One wonders, though, if Herge would've amended the line where Tintin calls the elder secretary a "shrew"?
As for whether Akass is Rastopopoulous: well, in the original draft sketches shown at the end of this volume , he clearly is. And quite frankly, this odd-looking villain has to be in disguise, and no one else would use such a James Bond villain mindset in his crimes. The rediscovered pages are very interesting, as they show - however briefly - the way Herge's mind worked as he developed the plot for a story, and mention an original idea for the plot in which Haddock completely loses all trace of himself as he becomes an art yuppie - only to be saved when Calculus develops a pill to restore him to alcoholism!
There's something nostalgic and undeniably 'modern' about "Alph-Art" as Herge envisioned it, particularly with the many other characters he had considered bringing back. I'll give some comments on the unofficial completed version by Canadian artist Yves Rodier in the next post, but in some ways, this ends more fittingly than any completed album could. Tintin, our globetrotting boy reporter, is taken away to have another brush with death.
We know that Tintin must surely be immortal, and so is it not perfect that we last see him facing the wrath of a recurring villain for one final time?
And beyond that, he is not just being led to his death - he's being taken to be encased in a mould and sold to collectors.
In short, Tintin is about to become an immortal work of art. Part 2: the unauthorised version Canadian artist Yves Rodier is among those who decided to complete this album - against the wishes of Herge's estate.
I approve. Although I waxed lyrical about how fitting Tintin's unending end is, I'd love to see this completed. The twenty-fourth and final title in the Tintin series is an unfinished symphony. There is clearly enough material for a very promising adventure, although the work is somewhat fragmented. The creator of Tintin was extremely interested in modern art, and spent a lot of his spare time visiting galleries and exhibitions. He decided not to take his hobby further and instead consecrated his spare time to his passion for collecting.
A short while afterwards the owner of an art gallery, Mr Fourcart, is assassinated. Tintin sets out to solve the case.
Orson Welles spun an intricate web of truth and deception to create a movie that has since been hailed for its visionary editing techniques. Alph-Art: H for Herg Alph-Art is an imaginary artistic movement founded by forger Ramo Nash, who paints and sculpts the letters of the alphabet.
The high priest of Alph-Art shows off a capital A and a capital Z, which stand for, in Bianca Castafiore's words, 'a microcosm of the whole universe'. Endaddine Akass Bianca Castafiore succumbs to the charm and charisma of this undesirable character. She gushes, 'He is a fascinating man, darling, absolutely fascinating.
You simply must meet him. He's the most m-a-a-rvellous mystic
