Having a browse through Abebooks and there seems to be quite a lot of stuff that has never been published in English done by Hergé, anyone got a complete list?

Off the top of my head I can think of about 12 Quick and Flupke books we've never seen.

There isn’t that much, really, if you don’t count his one panel cartoons for the Scouts etc.

“The Adventures of Totor”, “Mister Mops” and a story which I think had the word “Cochonette” (a pig) in the title come to mind...

Some of the Q&F books could be the strips done by Johann de Moore after Hergé’s death.

Yes when you think about it, in terms of what actually has been translated, we English-speakers have been pretty well served on the whole. Now that we're (hopefully) about to see the black and white original versions of the earlier books, it seems that they're trying to cater for the archival side of Hergé as well, which can only be a good thing. I only wish it wouldn't take so long!

But where English-speakers are really disadvantaged are with all the reference works dedicated to Hergé and Tintin, especially when you consider the vast plethora of them that swamp the French market.

As a small consolation, Harry Thompson's excellent "Hergé & His Creation" has never been translated into French. Dutch, yes, but French - nope.

I was just looking at Harry Thompson's book again now that I'm back in Vancouver... I can confirm he was the one who said Alph-Art never would have made it as a Tintin album, and I dare say that his thoughts are probably more insightful than the other Tintinologists out there.

I really like Michael Farr's book, but I felt he was reluctant ever to be critical of Hergé. Thompson, on the other hand, presents probably a more balanced view of Hergé's life, to the point of ridiculing some of the people who idolize him beyond all reason. All while being a staunch fan himself. Not having re-read more than a few snippets, I highly recommend it.

Is Harry Thompsons book still available?

The book is out of print, I believe. Anyhow, do check out this existing Harry Thompson thread.

Ten of the twelve Quick and Flupke books were never translated into English, and neither were most of Hergé's early work, like Totor, C.P. les Hannotens (the Scout one), Monsieur Bellum, Monsieur Mops, or L'Extraordinaire Aventure de Flup, Nénesse, Poussette et Cochonnet.

Will the early color version of "The Black Island" ever be translated?

Well that presumably depends on the success of the recent facsimiles, special books (e.g. Tintint at Sea) and Congo, really, but all things considered I think that there will be a time when the colour facsimiles make some sort of appearance in English. However, there are no guarantees…
