Herge's final Tintin adventure. Unfinished at the time of his death, this collects his sketches and story notes to give us as complete an adventure as possible.

There are arguments, both pro and con, when it comes to the idea of releasing the works, especially incomplete works, of an artist who no longer is living and able to finish such works.

When it comes to post-death release of works, such occurrences are far from new or unusual given examples like Selena, Elvis Presley and others.

As far as this book, it is another book from Herge and it isn't necessarily incomplete so much as it is thrown together with artwork and ideas that might have been. I'm glad I read it though I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.

This book is just boring. It is not like the usual Tintin ones. It just has these different character sketches and stuff. The stories are always short and they keep on changing.
