      King Ottokar’s Sceptre is one of only two Tintin books I surprisingly never read as a kid (the other being In the Land of the Soviets) and, having read it now, I can say I didn’t miss out on anything back then! Set in the fictional country of Syldavia (I think it’s based on Albania), if the King doesn’t brandish his sceptre on St Vladimir’s Day, he must step down - and some nefarious neighbouring country is sending agents to steal the sceptre for just that to happen! Tintin stumbles ac [...]

      In usual Tintin style everything is set up by mere coincidence. Tintin finds a briefcase in his local park that belongs to a Professor of sigillograpy, the study of seals - the stampy kind, not the animals. The Professor os travelling to the Eastern European country of Sylvia to study royal seals and Tintin accompanies him on the trip. But what happens when there is a theft of the royal sceptre? Only Tintin, Thomson and Thompson can save the day, albeit with a lot of screw ups and a lot of narro [...]

      These adventure get more and more funny King Ottokar's Scepter recovery had a main role for Milu! But in order to find out which exactly, you will have to read the book! Tin-tin goes on in his globe trotter activities, where he is also forced to face danger and malevolence And our already customary friends, the Dupond and Dupont, continue to be completely absent minded, falling over and tripping all over the place and never understanding things at first sightMaria Carmo,Lisbon, 7 January 2015.

      Our first journey into Syldavia5 February 2012 There have been some who have suggested that this album is where Tintin is finally developed, though as I have suggested, I consider that album to be the Cigars of the Pharaoh. This album though develops a number of elements that are going in reappear in later albums, the most important being the country of Syldavia, as well as introducing the Milanese Nightingale, Bianca Castafiore. Syldavia is a fictional country that Herge developed, and I suspec [...]

      irst published in French in 1939, and written at the time that Europe was under the thumb of totalitarianism: Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin.Tintin is taken through a sequence of strange vents to the mythical Kingdom of Syldavia, which we learn much about in this book. The drawings and information which bring this country to life : a combination between Zenda and Albania , are amazing .A plot by Fascists based in neighboring Borduria is hatched to unseat King Muskar, involving the seizure of the [...]

      Interesting book!! Very nicely narrated!! The book has some stuff which is not needed!! It gives some boredom feeling to the reader! The plot begins to unfold slowly but it can be guessed quite well by a regular reader!!Certainly not the best of the franchise but a good read is definitely assured!!

      I felt Ottokar’s Sceptre was ‘only’ good rather than great.It’s not that there are any clear faults – and we’re treated to another absent-minded professor, as Herge continued to warm up for Calculus’ eventual appearance – but the adventure was missing some tension for me. It might have been a case of expectations not quite being met, as I wanted a little more depth to the mystery of how the sceptre is stolen I think, more detail to that plot.The premise I really enjoyed – the t [...]

      When I was a little kid, I owned every Tintin comic book adventure and I read all of them, then re-read them all over again, laughing at the same jokes and used "Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles" as my curse-phrase.I am exploring the world of Tintin again after my Belgian jaunt, in the homeland of the artist Herge and where comics are highly regarded as literature. Beneath each vividly drawn and colored panel is a moral about the way the world lived in 1950.In this chapter, Herge cr [...]

      If my memory is correct this is the first TinTin book I read. I still can remember being lost within the pages of this book as a small child (I think I couldn't even read then). I loved the part when TinTin's plane was shot down and snowy walking down the red carpet majestically with the sceptre held in its mouth.

      Tintin get again in trouble after finding a briefcase on a bench in the gardens. Tintin thinks that the main character Professor to whom the briefcase belonged, was kidnapping and the one Tintin accompanied to the mythical Balkan country is a clone. After a rough landing, getting in prison, falling in a trap, getting in trouble multiple times he investigates the robbery of King's sceptre. My favorite scenes the one's with Snowy, especially when it walks on red carpet with the sceptre held in its [...]

      Part 8 of my (intended) big re-read of the whole Tintin-canon after decades I had read this one before - and enjoyed it maybe even more than the first time around because of the info found in Michael Farr's excellent 'Tintin - The Complete Companion' which I am reading parallel to the Tintin-books.In this case Farr makes a good case to show how Hergé uses fictitious countries (in 1938) to comment on the volatile political situation and pretty much predicts the German attack on Poland by means o [...]

      Another enjoyable but ultimately disappointing adventure with Tintin. There are essentially three problems with this tale. The story is a cliché, the bumbling comic figures are not amusing and are a distraction since they barely figure in the plot, and an adventure this big needs more telling. More time was needed away from Tintin to show what was happening in other places with other characters for this tale to reach its potential. On the plus side are a likeable style and some really lovely ar [...]

      Oh for the good ol' times of visa-less travel!! Especially to made-up East European countries.The plot is more mystery solving. Bianca Castafiore is a riot. Snowy starts playing a more prominent role as Tintin's sidekick. The rest is predictably, coincidentally, stumbly, Tintin!

      Δίνει εντυπωσιακά την ατμόσφαιρα του μεσοπολέμου και της επέκτασης της Γερμανίας σε βάρος των γειτόνων της. Δεν έχει όμως το σουρεαλιστικά παιχνιδιάρικο ύφος άλλων έργων της πρώτης εποχής (Πούρα του Φαραώ, το Σπασμένο Αυτί) και στέκεται με υπερβολικά πολύ σεβασμό στον βασ [...]

      In this book, Tintin is swept into an intriguing case in a mythical Balkan-like country. The adventure is also a satire on fascism, as Herge takes a swipe on Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union for their aggression and bellicose behavior in those days.

      Primeiro livro de Tintin lido na sua versão original, uma experiência que irei certamente repetir. Sempre gostei destas aventuras, e depois desta experiência, fiquei ainda com mais vontade de ler (e reler) os restantes livros desta coleção.

      The first half of this book could be called "The many captures and escapes of TinTin"- it's basically a sequence of the young protagonist falling into one trap after another and getting out of it through a lucky stroke more than anything to do with his brains. The story picks up eventually once he finally gets to Syldavia, a fictional pastiche of Poland and Turkey which is rather interesting, and examined in detail for historic parallels in the version of the story that I have. The conspiratoria [...]

      Regresé! xDMe faltó postear este review el mismo día que lo terminé y fue el mismo día que lo inicie ><Como es usual, nuestro intrépido periodista Tintin y su fiel compañero Milu, se encuentran con un extraño profesor que estudia sellos, de los cuales tiene uno que tiene una historia particular sobre un cetro de Ottokar. En el que se cuenta que todos los descendientes que tienen el cetro, van a reinar y quien lo pierda, abdica. En ese momento, en la ciudad, un grupo esta intentando [...]

      When Tintin returns a briefcase, belonging to a sigilographer (an expert on historical seals), little did he know that he'd find himself in a thrilling adventure that leads him to Syldavia, where the Royal Sceptre is in the centre of espionage, political intrigue, and a potential coup d'état. Action packed and engaging, I enjoyed the detailed world building and storytelling, especially the fictitious (and fractious) history of the Kingdom Of Syldavia and the monarchy. The drawings of the mounta [...]

      I know I read all of these at some point; I remember checking them out from the SB Bookmobile when I was young. The Bookmobile used to park on our street and I was allowed to walk down the street to check out books. Not one of Tintin's greatest adventures, but always a good read. Missed the Captain in this one.

      Fun Tinin book, where he is going after the mystery of happening in the fictional country of Syldavia (immediately Albania comes to mind) The adventure is also a satire on fascism, as Herge takes a swipe on Nazi Germany grappling Europe.

      It may be old but still has it's charm. Impressed by the extensive country-culture building behind Syldavia itself including it's history + cultural feel, and how it all plays into the narrative. Plus the comedy antics of Thomson and Thompson is just hilarious to watch.

      Excellent plot! No one suspects much that that "Professor Alembick" is just a stunt double. Awesome story!!!!!!!!!
