King Ottokar's Sceptre (Part 2 of 2)
3 April 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

When Tintin arrives at the castle he learns that there are more people, and very important ones are in on this planned heist. So after several attempts to keep Tintin from seeing the king, he finally does and he convinces the him about the possible danger. So they go to check out if the sceptre is still protected, but when they get there, it's gone and the photographer (the impostor professor Hector) and two guards are unconscious. The Thompsons are called on the case, but it's Tintin who finds out about the secret spring in the camera that fired the sceptre into the nearby forest. So, Tintin checks out the forest, but two agents grab it and now Tintin races to stop them getting to the Borduria boarder. Time is getting close for the King to show the sceptre to the awaiting crowd. Tintin has now got the sceptre, and thwarted Bordurian's plans to overthrow the king and is racing the clock back to get in time for the king's presentation, so he can stay king of Syldavia.

"King Ottokar's Sceptre" is writer and illustrator Herge's eighth comic strip album of "The Adventures of Tintin" and the filth episode (part 2 of 2) of Season 2. Leading onto the quest of Tintin trying to get the King and warn him and then eventually help locate the sceptre. Shows how splendour pack this closing half is. Thrills are little, but when they erupt (like the chase scenes and the aircraft action), it's done concisely with a great amount of zip and excitement that actually complements its thorough laced story of keeping a cloud hanging over the developments and conspiracy. Some unexpected surprises are worked in nicely, despite some convenient happenings. The Thompsons get to show us why they are labelled the "World's Greatest Detectives". Cropping up for her first appearance in the series (and who would go on to be friends with Tintin by being in plenty more) is the opera singer Bianca Castafiore. Müsstler and Colonel Boris make for deviously bright and threatening villains. A diversely smart, interesting and large scale adventure, has you thinking on the lurking subtext at hand. An astounding inclusion to the series.
