One finishes this book regretting Herge's-or George Remi's-death in 1983. Tintin and the Alph-Art has all of the ingredients for a fantastic Tintin story. Surely, if Georges Remi had lived, this would have been his most wonderful work. Even though I do not speak French, I could recognize some of the words, based on my rudimentary knowledge of Spanish. Comparing the English to the French within the dialogue bubbles was an exciting experience, seeing the raw work and sketches, imagining how all of the incomplete pieces work together. All in all, it was an enjoyable read.
