THE JEWELS OF CASTAFIORE - Journal Tintin special edition.

In the early sixties, The Adventures of Tintin was beginning to reap success. Hergé, who was beginning to pay special attention to contemporary art, decided to break the creative rules and do something surprising. And he succeeded. Before conceiving the definitive album edition, known all over the world, the cartoonist had produced a first version published in Tintin magazine, the originals of which had been lying in the archives for 60 years. Carefully and meticulously restored, these documents allow us today to show the public The Jewels of the Castafiore as it appeared in its entirety, between 1961 and 1962, in the weekly magazine for young people from 7 to 77 years old.

      Tintin In The Land Of The Soviets - Special Color Edition - CASTELLANO

       

      Created in 1929, this first Tintin adventure surprises by a new and modern legibility when it was colored in 2016, long after Hergé's disappearance. Already endowed with an enthusiastic energy, Tintin in this adventure gets into a powerful convertible car and, to express speed, Hergé lifts his bangs from his forehead... forever, in a toupee that will remain his signature physical feature. The young author was 21 years old and had always shown great skill with the pencil without having studied drawing. He did not know that he had just created a hero who would become universal and mythical in the course of his twenty-four Adventures...

        The publication of the adventures of Tintin, reporter of the Petit Vingtième in the land of the Soviets, began on January 10, 1929 in the children's supplement of the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle, in the form of single pages, in black and white as the present edition. In 1930 they were expanded in an album with which Hergé started the collection of the Adventures of Tintin, showing what in the future would be his way of doing both in drawings and in scripts and "gags", and that he would perfect in the following adventures.

            €13.37

            Tintin and the Art-Alpha, unfinished album, is finally part of the 23 other adventures of Tintin. In the months following Hergé's death on March 3, 1983, speculation was rife: many readers wanted the master's collaborators to finish the story. But Hergé was clear: there would be no new Tintins after him. Finally, in 1986, a luxurious album was published, in two booklets, with the main sketches of the cartoonist. A few years after the publication of Tintin and the Picaros, and shortly before the fiftieth anniversary of his hero, Hergé chose as the setting for his next album the world of contemporary art, which he knew particularly well. He throws Tintin into it without knowing very well where this story was going to lead him. Hergé works sporadically, wishing not to disappoint his readers, but illness overtakes him and soon convinces him that this adventure will never be finished and that it will become Tintin's last adventure.

             

            "If others were to take up Tintin, they might do it better, or worse, but one thing is certain: they would do it differently, and then it would no longer be Tintin" (Hergé).

              Fans of Tintin's adventures had to wait eight years after Flight 714 to Sydney to read Tintin and the Picaros, which began appearing in 1976. Hergé was now only working for pleasure, and was in no hurry. The idea took time to take shape. The setting was clear to him: South America. For the story he drew some inspiration from the Regis Debré and the Tupamaros affair. But these events are only the backdrop for the adventure. We go back to the imaginary republic of San Teodoros, (see The Broken Ear), where two generals aspiring to dictatorship wage a continuous war to achieve power. We meet again the ineffable General Alcazar (see The Broken Ear, The Seven Crystal Balls), Colonel Sponsz (The Calculus Affair), now under the name of Sponge, who has been sent by Borduria to support General Tapioca, and the explorer Ridgewell (see The Broken Ear). Serafin Brass is also around with his overwhelming personality, presiding over the group of the merry Turulones, and we also find Tapioca's  charming wife: the terrible Peggy. What is striking in this album is that Tintin wears jeans, drives a motorcycle wearing a helmet with the hippie peace sign and does yoga.

                €13.37

                This album marks a return to adventure. It begins to appear in the weekly Tintin, in September 1966, four years after the end of The Castafiore Emerald. Here we meet again Rastatopoulos, whom we thought drowned at the end of The Red Sea Sharks, and his friend Allan. A new figurine appears: the very rich Lazlo Carreras, the man who never laughs. Carreiras is a millionaire owner of airairplanes, oil companies and the Sani-Cola beverage. This character was inspired by Marcel Dassault. He is a paradoxical character: he is among the good guys, but under the effect of the truth serum he is portrayed as a being without scruples when it comes to having amassed his fortune. Towards the end of the story we discover Mik Ezdaditoff, a character inspired by Jacques Bergier, author of the book Le Matin des magiciens and animator of the magazine Planète. We see here Hergé's fascination with paranormal and extraterrestrial phenomena.

                  La Castafiore announces her arrival in Moulinsart, and the captain tries to flee the trip in a hurry, but stumbles on a broken step that they have not yet come to fix and breaks his ligaments. The rumor of a sentimental relationship between the singer and the "old sea dog" is born and everything is full of paparazzi. And the jewels disappear... In this album there are no travels or great adventures, and that is the grace of Hergé to maintain the intrigue. All the action takes place in Moulinsart, in and around the gardens of the castle. As Hergé himself tells us: "When I started this album, my intention was also to simplify, to train myself to tell, this time, a story in which nothing happens, without resorting to exoticism. Simply to see if I could keep the reader in suspense until the end.

                    After reading the news of a airplane crash in the Himalayas, Tintin has a dream where his injured young friend Tchang asks for help half buried in the snow. The next day he learns from the newspaper that Tchang was on the crashed airplane, and that no survivors have been found. But Tintin believes that Tchang is alive and sets off for Kathmandu to organize a rescue expedition. Tintin in Tibet coincides with a period of serious turbulence in Hergé's life, and its creation constituted a real therapy for him that really helped him to overcome it. According to Hergé himself, at that time (1958), he was going through a real crisis and his dreams and nightmares were almost always white. These dreams were always repeated and the author had to go to a psychiatrist who advised him to abandon this work because he would never finish it. Fortunately, Hergé did not do so. Not only did he finish Tintin in Tibet, but, in the opinion of many, it is one of his masterpieces. The color white also reigns in almost all the work, but this time not as a nightmare but as a purification. .

                      Slave and arms trafficking are at the core of the plot of this adventure, and as usual, Tintin and the captain are involved by a series of coincidences. This album is a sort of continuation of Tintin in land of black gold, and a large number of characters that appeared in previous episodes reappear in it. The emir Ben Kalishn Ezab, in difficulties in his country, sends his little son, the terrible Abdalah to Moulinsart. Tintin and the captain flee from his mischief, leaving him with the long-suffering Nestor, and head for Khemed to try to help the emir.

                        This is a comic masterpiece. We prefer not to explain the plot of the story here, so that those who read it for the first time can fully enjoy it. From the very beginning, the events are chained together at a fast pace: an explosion is heard, a storm breaks out, objects break, the power goes out and Serafin Brass arrives for the first time in the series. There will be virtually no downtime in the entire story. For the creation of the sets, Hergé wanted to be as precise as possible. The story, which takes place mostly in Switzerland, reflects the Cold War, which was going through very tense moments between the two blocs, represented in the rivalry between Borduria and Syldavia. The Calculus Affair was published in 1956.

As in the first part, Destination Moon, Hergé did exhaustive research for the realization of this album. In fact, the realism of these two books led Paris-Match magazine to commission Hergé to illustrate the explanation of the Apollo 12 mission.

                            This work began to be published in the weekly magazine Tintin on March 30, 1950, nineteen years before the arrival of man on the moon. It is not science fiction but an anticipation as accurate as possible. Hergé contacted Dr. Bernard Heuvelmans, author of the book L'homme parmis les étoiles (Man Among the Stars), a specialist on the subject, who collaborated with the team. An extraordinary model of the rocket was made and submitted for the approval of Ananolf, author of the book Astronautics. It was entirely dismountable and allowed the young Bob de Moor, who was mainly responsible for the scenery, to know where the characters were in the spaceship at all times. Hergé has the grace to give a humorous tone to all the scenes of scientific explanations that could bore the reader. Thus, when Wolf and Professor Calculus explain more or less complicated elements, Captain Haddock is there to make us smile with his replies.

                              This Tintin adventure is about the struggle between the big oil companies. It all starts when adulterated gasoline invades the market. Tintin travels to the country of Khemed, where a power struggle pits Emir Ben Kalish Ezab against Bab El Ehr, each financed by a different oil company. Enter the terrible Abdalah, the emir's son. Hergé was inspired by a photograph of the real King Faisal II as a child. This album has gone through numerous versions before knowing its final form. It began to appear on September 25, 1939 in Le Petit Vingtième, following King Ottokar's Sceptre, but the war broke out. On May 9, 1940, the German forces entered Brussels and the publication of Le Petit Vingtième was interrupted, and with it, Tintin in land of black gold. The story stops on the current page 26 of the album, and will not be continued until 6 years later in Tintin magazine.

Tintin discovers the professor on the freighter Pachamac, but is unable to free him. The clues will lead them on a long journey in the company of Zorrino, an Indian boy, through the Andes mountains and the jungle to a secret temple of the Incas.

After a short time, all the participants of the expedition fall victim to a mysterious evil, and whenever this happens, fragments of small crystal balls are found.

                                      Tintin buys a model of an old galleon at the old market. It turns out to be a replica of the ship that Captain Haddock's ancestor, the knight Hadoque, commanded, who fought against the pirate Rackham the Red, who carried on his ship a great treasure that has been hidden for centuries. This story was first published in Le Soir on June 11, 1942, during the occupation of Belgium, and was one of Hergé's favorite albums. For the design of the Unicorn, Hergé relied on precise documentation of 17th century ships in the Paris Navy Museum.

                                        A meteorite is heading towards the earth and many are predicting the end of the world. Tintin goes to the astronomical observatory where he meets Professor Calys. Fortunately, the omens are not fulfilled and only a fragment of the meteorite reaches the earth, falling into the Arctic Ocean. When he notices the presence of an unknown element, Professor Calys organizes an expedition on the ship Aurora, in which Tintin and Captain Haddock take part. The Shooting Star will be the first album already designed in color and was published in 1942.

                                          Following the trail of a mysterious can of crab, Tintin ends up prisoner on a ship owned by a gang of opium traffickers. There he meets the evil Allan and for the first time Captain Haddock, then a pathetic slave of his addiction to alcohol, a vice that causes innumerable problems for him and for Tintin who tries to help him. The captain's rehabilitation will come after his forced detoxification during his desert crossing. On May 10, German troops enter Belgium, interrupting the publication of Tintin in land of black gold. Disaster looms over the whole country. Hergé, with his daughter and his sister-in-law, left for Paris on May 15, and from there they went to a friend's house in the Aubergne region, to await events. On June 30 they returned to Brussels and there Hergé found that Le Vingtième Siècle had died, and with it Le Petit Vingtième had also disappeared.

                                            When Tintin picks up a wallet forgotten in a bank, he cannot imagine that it will lead him to the country of Syldavia, located in the center of the Balkans. There he learns that there is a conspiracy to steal the scepter of the king, Muskar XII, without which he can no longer reign. And his neighboring country, Borduria, has clear invasion intentions. The plot is clearly influenced by the period. The story was published in Le Petit Vingtième from August 4, 1938 to August 10 of the following year. The signs heralding World War II were numerous and Hitler's Germany was preparing the invasion of Austria, which was annexed and became another province of the Third Reich. We see in King Ottokar's Sceptre how Borduria tries to annex the country of Syldavia, with the help of a certain Musstler, (whose name is a composition of Hitler and Mussolini). The Bordurians can be identified with the Nazis in many aspects: the names, the uniforms, the airairplanes and by their tactics of infiltration in Syldavia. In 1947 the album was redesigned in color.

                                              This time, Tintin sets out on a journey to Scotland on the trail of evildoers. He discovers the secret behind the walls of the castle of Ben More, on the Black Isle, and its mysterious monster. The Black Island appeared in Le Petit Vingtième from April 15, 1937 to June 16, 1938. The album was first published at the end of 1938 in black and white. In 1943 it was changed to color, reducing the number of pages to 62. In 1965, when the English translation was made, the British publisher pointed out to Hergé numerous errors that this volume contained from the English point of view. Hergé sent his collaborator Bob de Moor to England with the list of errors and the assignment to rejuvenate and authenticate the story. Thus Black Island was completely redrawn and modernized. It should be noted that already in the 1937 edition a television set appears, and although the first essays date from 1923, it was still a relatively confidential invention at that time.

                                                The theft of an Arumbaya fetish from the ethnographic museum takes Tintin to the South American republic of San Teodoro. There he is immersed in the war of this country with neighboring Nuevo Rico, and becomes an assistant to General Alcazar, a controversial character that we will meet again later in other adventures. Tintin goes deep into the jungle to find the Arumbayas and discover the mystery of the stolen fetish. This Tintin adventure was first published in Le Petit Vingtième at the end of 1935 and came out in volume in 1937. It was put into color in 1943. Here again, Hergé includes allusions to current world events. The conflict between San Teodoro and Nuevo Rico over oil is based on the bloody Gran Chaco war, which confronted Paraguay and Bolivia during the 1930s and lasted three years, causing more than 100,000 deaths. Hergé is almost absolutely faithful to reality. He converts "el Gran Chaco" to "el Gran Chapo" and transforms the names of two oil companies, but everything else is scrupulously accurate.

                                                 

                                                In this album Hergé describes the first of his imaginary countries, which he will later make one of his specialties.

                                                  Tintin travels this time to millenary China. In Shanghai he discovers the origin of a powerful poison that makes you go mad. He is confronted with a terrible gang of opium traffickers and with Japanese agents who keep the reader in suspense until the end of the book. At the end of Cigars of the Pharaoh, Hergé had announced in "Le Petit Vingtième" that Tintin was going to continue his journey to the Far East. He then received a letter from Father Gosset, chaplain to Chinese students at the University of Louvain, who advised him to learn more about China and its culture and introduced him to Tchang Tchong-Jen, a young Chinese art student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Louvain. (We can recognize him in the character Tchang, the Chinese friend of Tintin). Through long conversations with Tchang, Hergé was able to get to know the culture of China, moving away from the clichés about the Chinese that Europeans had, absolutely far from reality. The friendship with Tchang would last a lifetime, both in fiction and in reality. This is the first album that Hergé would fully assume, and from here on he always documented in depth the countries where Tintin had to travel.

                                                  Tintin travels on a cruise ship bound for the Far East. On board he meets the strange Egyptologist Philemon Cyclone, who is traveling in search of the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Kih-Oskh. Tintin accompanies him to the tomb and there he discovers the mysterious cigars, which hide more than just tobacco. He is then kidnapped and abandoned at sea, but is saved and lands in Arabia. After numerous vicissitudes he ends up in India, where he stays with the Maharaja of Rawhajpurtalah. Here appear characters that we will meet again later: the ineffable policemen Thomson and Thompson, the evil Rastapopoulos and the peculiar Oliveira de Salazar. Cigars of the Pharaoh begin to appear in Le petit Vingtiéme on December 8, 1932. It was the time when the news of the curse of Tutankhamun's tomb occupied many pages of the tabloids. This subject interested Hergé so much that years later he raised it again in The Seven Crystal Balls.

Hergé's initial idea was to build his story around the Redskin Indian village that had always fascinated him, but then he also wanted to show as much of America as possible: the deserts and prairies, modern industries and big cities, alcohol prohibition, gangsters, cowboys and the plundering of the Redskin Indians, denouncing how they were expelled from their lands when oil was found there. Tintin in America began to be published on September 3, 1931 in Le Petit Vingtième, at the rate of two plates per week, where it would be published for a year. As in the case of Tintin in the Congo, the color version of the album was produced in 1945, benefiting from the progress that the practice and experience of these years had given to Hergé, who had already reached a great mastery and mastery in the language of visual storytelling, where the images narrate by themselves, without waiting for the text to do so.

                                                      In this adventure, Tintin goes to the center of Africa, to make a report. There, dangerous adventures await him, as his enemies are chasing him to kill him. On Tintin's return from his trip to Russia, described in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Hergé is commissioned to take Tintin to the Congo, then a Belgian colony. This album is an excellent document to see how Europeans of the time imagined Africa and Africans. The story was first published on June 5, 1930 in Le Petit Vingtième (see Hergé's biography). In 1946, Hergé completely redrew the album to change it to color and reduce its 110 original plates to the 62 pages that the albums would have from then on. In this new color version, he introduced numerous modifications, softening the colonialist overtones a bit. In spite of this, Tintin in the Congo fell out of favor from the 1950s onwards, and became quite difficult to find. It was the troubled time of decolonization, and the album was not particularly timely. But curiously it was in a Zaire magazine that the story first reappeared, ending the quarantine of Tintin in the Congo.
