Does anybody have any information on Yves Rodier 'Tintin' books like a list of tintin books he's written. I know of 'Alph-art', 'the blue oranges', 'the sorcerors lake' and 'reporter for the 20th century newspaper'. Are all of these printed as books.

We have to be careful about discussing these, but so long as no one asks where to find them, it should be okay. To the best of my knowledge Rodier didn't draw the Blue Oranges ; it doesn't look up to his usual standard, plus I don't think he has the time to draw a new Tintin book - he's a comic strip artist by profession now. Two of his series are Pignouf & Hamlet and Simon Nian.

But to get back to what you asked for, Rodier has drawn :

• Tintin and Alph-Art
• Tintin, Freelance Reporter (for Le 20ème siècle)
• The Sorceror's Beast (or the Sorceror's Lake)
• Tintin and the Thermozero (one page)
• A Day at the Airport (one page)
• Tintin in Tibet (an additional page, 27bis)
• The Portrait Gallery (a portfolio of images)
• Some Christmas cards and general illustrations

Some were printed privately in limited numbers - the only one that I know received any sort of general circulation was Alph-Art.

Hmm... what exactly is the additional page in Tintin In Tibet? I've seen one that involves the captain getting into a rather fun accidents with some fireworks (or something like that), but I thought that was drawn by Hergé. Anyway, would it be against the rules to post a link to a finished (coloured and translated) version of Rodier's Alph-Art - it's unprintable anyway. All of the pages have been watermarked. But I won't post the link to the site if it's against the rules, obviously.

That page was cut from the magazine version of the story, it was drawn by Hergé but dropped when it was transferred to album format. The page by Rodier fits in after page 27 and shows Tintin finding it impossible to sleep, going outside and seeing the yeti. He decides not to worry the others by telling them.

Afraid it's still not allowed, linking to any sort of pirate material could get the site in trouble with the Château. Sorry about that!

Does anyone know much about "A day at the airport" because that sounds interesting

A day at the Airport is an unfinished comic, it is drawn in only one page.

A day at the airport is an abandonned project of Hergé in 1976 after the Picaros... An album edited in the 80's explains the mains ideas and shows some drawings.... Hergé wanted to create a story that happened only in an airport.... Rodier tried to start drawing the story but it was too complicated.... He draw several pages but only one was really fnished (with print and color). There is a pastiche album of 30 pages but it is like the official tintin & alph art : drawings, wordings, ideas but not a real and complete story of tintin !

It's very easy for anyone to find anyway. I find it pretty poor stuff to be honest. Apart from the first page (which Herge had pretty detailed pencil sketches of) the rest of the art is poor.

The characters are really nothing like Herges drawings when you compare them closely. I'd stick with the official Alph-Art. It's unfinished and it's published that way.
