Tintin : King Ottokar Sceptre (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.274

King Ottokar’s Sceptre is a graphic novel by Herge, and it is the eighth volume to feature the Belgian journalist Tintin.

Summary of the Book

When Tintin finds a lost briefcase in a park, he tracks it back to its owner. He is surprised to learn that it belongs to the sigillographer Professor Hector Alembick, who is about to travel to the Balkan nation of Syldavia. However, the Professor is being followed by spies, and Tintin follows these spies to a nearby Syldavian restaurant. A man who offers to be his confidante, but when Tintin goes to see him, he is unconscious. To keep ahead of the spies, Tintin accompanies the Professor on his journey. When he reaches Syldavia, he realizes that the Professor is acting out of character and he may be an imposter. At the very centre of this intricate situation is a plot to overthrow the monarchy of King Muskar XII.

About Hergé

Georges Prosper Remi, better known as Hergé, was a Belgian cartoonist best known for creating the characters in the Tintin comics series. He completed 23 books in the series and is best remembered for Tintin in Tibet and Prisoners of the Sun.

After working for a brief stint at various newspapers, he started serialization of the Tintin stories in 1929. He is considered to have greatly influenced the world of comics, majorly European comics, and was included in the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame and the Eisner Award Hall of Fame as the Judge's choice. The Tintin series has since been adapted into two TV series, one radio series and five full-length movies, including a 2001 hit movie directed by Steven Spielberg.

Tintin : King Ottokar Sceptre

This is the 8th book in the series.

Here Tintin's adventure takes him to a country called Syldavian (made up country). and he helps the Monarch of the country remain in power. It got lots of attempts on Tintin's life and the usual intertwining plots.

Its a stand alone story, so you can buy this book as a stand alone book without reading the others before this.

Well Adventures of Tintin is a classic and if you have read them as a child and have misplaced and want to re-read do buy them or also pass it on to your children, nieces, nephews etc.. it makes a good gift.

Tintin is a great collectable. If you are not of the type who reads then there is a set of VCD's / DVD available for 1/4th the price of buying the whole set of 24 books. I however recommend the individual 64 page book format as there are unmatchable to the legacy of Tintin.

Tintin: King Ottokar???s Sceptre

Another enjoyable adventure which sees Tintin and Snowy enmeshed in the political machinations of a small Balkan country, Syldavia, which is riven by internal strife and coveted by a militaristic neighbouring country. The politics of Europe of 1939, the time of first publication of this book, appears to have influenced Herg?? to the extent of partly basing this story on the Nazi annexation of Austria. However, Herge got the balance right here between real-world politics and the 'lighter' espionage and chase elements of the adventure. This adventure is also important as it develops a number... ()

However, Herge got the balance right here between real-world politics and the 'lighter' espionage and chase elements of the adventure. This adventure is also important as it develops a number of characters that are going to reappear in later ones, the most important being the country of Syldavia, as well as introducing the Milanese Nightingale, Bianca Castafiore.
