This book is a pastiche by Y. Rodier, in hommage to Hergé's last album."The twenty-fourth adventure of Tintin, "Tintin and Alph-Art', was left unfinished at the time of Hergé's death on the 3rd of March, 1983. Since then, several artists have tried their hand at finishing this ultimate adventure of Tintin. Presented here is the version drawn by Yves Rodier, a Canadian artist, in an English translation by Richard Wainman. The intention, when creating this translation, was to remain as faithful to the original as possible, and therefore. new place names and character names have not been anglicised. This practice, which was carried out by the English translators, Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Tumer for the books in the established canon, has not been used here."
