The Red Sea Sharks

The Red Sea Sharks is, I suppose, a fine adventure tale, even if it’s not an entry in Hergé’s canon that I’m particularly fond of. The nineteenth installment in the series, the author uses the opportunity to tie a whole slew of open story threads together and anchor the long-term continuity of the series, but he also decides to deal with the issue of modern slavery – a controversial and topical issue, to be sure. However, while I have no doubt the author’s intentions were true, the story reads more than a little awkwardly in dealing with the topic.The story finds room from all sorts, including a short cameo from Doctor J. W. Müller himself and reappearance of Haddock’s treacherous first mate Allan, tempting the good captain with the demon drink. While all of this is a credit to the sheer level of detail in the world that Hergé has built, it can’t help but feel a little gimmicky and a little too hackneyed. I think it probably says something about me that I can accept Tintin and Haddock flying to the moon, but have a bit of bother with the idea of all of Tintin’s bad guys collaborating on one evil plot. Though, to be fair to Hergé, he seems to concede the point with the opening, where Haddock dismisses a movie’s plotting as “too improbable” in the way it ties the characters together. In fairness, Hergé seems to have had a bit of sense of humour about his stories for quite a while now, and I like the way that he has Haddock actually call his friend Tintin on his incredibly reckless pursuit of mystery, to the point of putting the pair in the face of mortal danger. When clues lead overseas to an unstable country, as they seem to do with increasing frequency, Haddock actually wonders out loud why on earth they would fly into such obvious peril. “What? Khemed? In the middle of a revolution! You’re crazy!” Of course, the pair inevitably end up going, but it makes it clear that Hergé’s series of books are increasingly self-aware – a trend that would reach its zenith in The Castafiore Emerald.Despite the hook of tying all Tintin’s foes together, it’s actually a fairly conventional adventure… at least if you discount the slave-trading at the centre of the story. I realise that Hergé undoubtedly intended to draw attention to a very serious international crime, but it’s hard to take it all seriously when the author seems quite clumsy in his manner of addressing it. His artwork has come a long way since the racist caricatures in Tintin in the Congo, but I still feel more than a little bit uncomfortable when I see Hergé draw Africans. It’s hard to believe that, as the sixties approached, the artist was still drawing the characters with stereotypically large lips and giving them condescending dialogue like, “We good black men… Want come out… No can breathe… We afraid…” I know that certain characters in the stories don’t speak perfect English, but none of Hergé’s foreigners seem quite so underdeveloped. It takes the Africans a page to understand the idea Haddock is explaining to them: the notion that the trip to Mecca was a trap. More than that, though, Tintin and Haddock – while condemning the traders – don’t seem too concerned about the health of their passengers. They put out a fire on the ship at night, and it’s well past dawn when Tintin remarks, “And now for the Negroes.” Even then, Haddock isn’t concerned about the Africans trapped below decks (who might be sick, or injured, or even drowned), responding, “There’s something more urgent: to send out a distress signal by radio.” When they cry for However, there are other more awkward concerns. Emir Mohammed ben Kalish Ezab explains to Tintin about his dealings with the company, “I also used another threat: that I would reveal to the world that Arabair are involved in slave-trading.” This implies that the Emir was willing to allow the slave-trading to continue as long as he got what he needed – that the idea of people trafficking in slaves was not morally repugnant to him, and was only really of use as leverage in negotiations. That’s grand – I accept that bad people to exist in these stories – but I find it fascinating that Tintin remains on good terms with a person like that. It just seems inherently wrong to keep babysitting for somebody like that, and Tintin give no indication of any objection to the Emir’s approach. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but it does bother me. And, truth be told, it overshadows the story a bit. The Red Sea Sharks is about as conventional a Tintin story as you can get – and it features some wonderful art from Hergé – but I never really warmed to it. I had a bit of difficulty with how Hergé handled his racially-themed content, and I also found the “all of Tintin’s bad guys working together” plot point a little forced. Still, things were about to get considerably different.help as Haddock is ready to let them out, he very dismissively exclaims, “All right, I’m coming now.”

Amusing Sharks

The Red Sea Sharks were really amusing. It was one of the best comic series written by Herge. It was one of my great experience. It was full thrill and adventure in water. I was very happy and excited to read this book. The cover page of this book is very attractive.

The Red Sea Sharks (Tintin)

This one takes us to familiar places and brings back familiar faces. The story isn't as interesting as some of the earlier ones, also because, if you've read the others, you find this a little repetitive. Tintin, Snowy and the Captain are back in Khemed and you have the usual betrayal, smuggling, rat-tat-tat etc. But it's nice to see Haddock back as Captain he even gives us the original “I am captain now”)! There are also new elements introduced which save the story to a great extent. The best parts of this story, however, are still the physical comedy involving Captain Haddock, Calculus and the Thomsons.

the red sea sharks

Story Captain Haddock simply cannot believe it, but human trafficking really is still going on, even in the twentieth century (and today in the twenty-first century). The Red Sea Sharks lifts the veil on the scandal of the modern day slave trade. Hergstayed abreast of current affairs, and as was his style, for this story he wove real-life news into action-packed adventure. Beginning at the end In classic literature a story does not usually start at the end, and nor do comic strips usually begin with the words HE END And yet this is exactly how Herglaunches the story of The Red Sea Sharks

Loved this book very much and reall enjoyed it a lot. Tintin has always been one of my favourate heroes right from my childhood and always will be. It always takes me on an adventurous journey.
