16 Avis
Tintin The Complete Companion starts where Tintin and the World of Herge stooped. An overview of the world famous comic character and of his adventures through the 23 titles of the complete oeuvre, the Complete Companion contextualizes Herge's work replaces it in its historical period by showing side by side by side the drawings and the references used by the artist to establish believable backgrounds and realistic details. Also included are sketches, large number of sketches that Herge would rework and polish until he would fine the clearest, most easily readable line giving birth to a style that would later be called the Clear Line. While this book is clearly aimed at an older reading audience, its iconography and attractive layouts will also appeal to teen agers and young and old comic connoisseurs who are familiar with Tintin adventures

Review: Tintin: The Complete Companion

Avis d'utilisateur  - Poornima - Goodreads

Excellent read for Tintin fans. Michael Farr has done fairly thorough research on Herge's hardwork beyond each of the plates. For a glimpse of comic readers, the efforts made by Herge was unimaginable. I am going to read Tintin collection again with whole new perspective. Consulter l'avis complet

Some of these books were adapted for the small screen including The Crab With The Golden Claws, Star of Mystery, Red Rakham's Treasure, Black Island, Objective Moon and The Calculus Affair.
