I agree, Mas, looking over Le Lac de la SorciÃ¨re
, it is of great quality. HergÃ©â€™s early black and white works were not very good either, but he improved drastically. It must be the same for Rodier.
Too bad he didn't go back and re-do Alph-Art.
Rodier did go back and completely re do it. This version is only available on CD-Rom and is very rare. The drawing is meant to be much better, but it is so rare I have never seen one for sale anywhere.
why this obsession with pirate books and unofficial stories anyway?
Iâ€™m not so much obsessed with them as much as I want to learn new Tintin adventures. HergÃ© left so many ideas, even if he didnâ€™t like all of them, he left Alph-Art
, Le ThermoZÃ©ro
, Les Pilules
, Mr Boullock Disappears
, Tintin in India
, one set in an airport, among others.
Also it's a subject so incredibly vast and thanks to Moulinsart, cast all over the Internet, so I want to piece all the works (tasteful anyway) together for Tintinologists to enjoy (if thatâ€™s their sort of thing).
I also just have found out a lot on the subject as I try and find them to add to my Tintin colllection. However, no fake has ever beaten a real HergÃ© and never will.
