Tintin and the Picaros (Part 2)
29 March 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

Alcazar leads Tintin, Calculus and Haddock to his hidden village, where they are planning their revolutionary take over, but Tapioca knowing the Picaros like their alcohol. Has drop crates of it in the jungle, meaning when they get to the camp, they're all drunken state and in no condition for any revolution. Calculus has made a pill, which turns anyone off the taste of alcohol and it works a favour Alcazar when he accepts Tintin request of no executions. When Jolyon Wagg arrives with a musical group in costumes for the city's carnival, Tintin uses this disguise to help Alcazar get into the city to overthrow Tapioca. With that under wrap, now they're racing the clock to get to Thomson and Thompson before they are executed.

Herge's "Tintin and the Picaros " is the twenty-third (and the final) comic strip album of "The Adventures of Tintin" and the ninth episode (part 2 of 2) of Season 2. When Tintin, Calculus and Haddock join Alcazar the humour features heavily with Alcazar's new dominating wife walking all over him and the naïve pest Jolyon Wagg the insurance salesman ( "The Calculus Affair") shows up on the scene. These are definite comic reliefs. Strangely enough, while being a more rugged outing it's not terribly violent despite what's going on in the story. Tintin seems a bit focused and aware of what's going on, instead of rushing into things and Haddock feels a bit more toned down, despite some active flourishes. Calculus however is his normal self. It picks up a bit of life at the camp, but more so during the exuberant carnival scenes and the well timed suspense of Tintin trying to reach and stop the execution of Thompson and Thomson. A strong, insightful and cracking inclusion to the series.
