A favorite read, this one - and lacking a lot of the racist overtones of some of the earlier books. ( )

El secreto del Unicornio (Le Secret de la Licorne) es un álbum de historietas perteneciente a la serie Las aventuras de Tintín, del autor belga Hergé. Es la primera parte de una aventura que continúa en el siguiente álbum, El tesoro de Rackham el Rojo.

Hernández y Fernández acuden al Mercado Viejo para investigar una misteriosa serie de robos de carteras. Allí se encuentran con Tintín, quien adquiere en el mercado la maqueta de un barco . Poco después de comprar el regalo, es abordado por dos individuos que le hacen ofertas por la maqueta. El primero es un tal Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine; el segundo, cuyo nombre se ignora todavía, resulta ser un tal Barnaby. Poco después Tintín recibe en su domicilio la visita de Sakharine, quien sigue intentando comprar el barco. Tintín se niega de nuevo. Milú derriba accidentalmente el barco y rompe el mástil, y cuando Tintín está arreglando los desperfectos llega el capitán Haddock, quien queda muy sorprendido al ver el barco. Lleva a Tintín a su casa y le enseña un cuadro en el que aparece el mismo barco, llamado Unicornio, tras un retrato de un antepasado de Haddock, el caballero de Hadoque, que vivió en la época de Luis XIV. Tintín regresa a casa, y descubre que el barco ha desaparecido. Acude a indagar a casa de Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, y descubre que éste posee un modelo de barco idéntico al que le han sustraído (no es el mismo, ya que el mástil no está roto). Al regresar a su casa, lo encuentra todo revuelto, señal de que el que sustrajo el barco ha regresado en busca de algo más.

Al día siguiente, cuando está poniendo orden en su casa, Tintín descubre un extraño pergamino con un mensaje en clave. Deduce que se encontraba oculto en el mástil de la maqueta del Unicornio, y se dirige a casa del capitán Haddock para hacerle partícipe de su descubrimiento. Cuando llega, la puerta está cerrada y Haddock no responde a las llamadas de Tintín, quien opta por derribar la puerta, y se encuentra a su amigo, bastante borracho, tocado con un sombrero semejante al de su antepasado del cuadro, y blandiendo un sable. Haddock le cuenta que ha estado leyendo las memorias del caballero de Hadoque, y empieza a narrar (y a escenificar, al mismo tiempo, a veces con grave perjuicio del mobiliario), acompañándose de varios tragos de una botella de whisky, el enfrentamiento de su antepasado con un famoso pirata, Rackham el Rojo. De la historia se deduce que su antepasado conocía el emplazamiento del tesoro de este pirata. Además, en las memorias del caballero de Hadoque figura una especie de testamento en que él lega a sus hijos tres modelos de su barco, el Unicornio, con la indicación de que moviendo el palo mayor llegarán a saber toda la verdad.

Tintín deduce rápidamente que el pergamino que ha encontrado en su casa es uno de los tres que hay ocultos en esos tres modelos de barco, y que todos juntos servirán para conocer el lugar en que se encuentra el tesoro. Sin embargo, cuando va a enseñárselo a Haddock, descubre que se lo han robado, ya que le ha desaparecido la cartera. Entonces, Tintín y Haddock deciden visitar a Sakharine, que posee otra de las tres maquetas del barco del caballero de Hadoque. Lo encuentran desvanecido, y descubren que el mástil de su reproducción del Unicornio está vacío: alguien se ha llevado el pergamino correspondiente. Cuando se recupera, les cuenta que ha sido visitado por un hombre en el que Tintín reconoce al que intentaba comprarle el barco en el Mercado Viejo. Cuando salen de allí, son abordados por ese mismo hombre, pero le disparan desde un automóvil, y cae gravemente herido. Antes de perder el conocimiento, señala de forma enigmática a unos gorriones.

Hernández y Fernández logran recuperar varias de las carteras robadas, entre ellas las de Tintín, con lo cual éste recupera el pergamino encontrado en su maqueta del Unicornio. Sin embargo, poco después es secuestrado por unos enigmáticos personajes que lo encierran en una especie de cripta, en algún lugar del campo. Logra escapar de la cripta y encuentra un almacén lleno de antigüedades. Sus secuestradores son en realidad los hermanos Pájaro o Ave (español latino), anticuarios, y se encuentra en el Castillo de Moulinsart / Mansion Pasador. Tanto los Pájaro o Ave como su mayordomo, Néstor (que terminará convirtiéndose en el mayordomo del capitán Haddock al final del siguiente álbum), intentan atrapar a Tintín, sin conseguirlo. Tintín logra telefonear al capitán para pedir ayuda, y escapa del castillo, perseguido de cerca por sus secuestradores y por Néstor. Después de muchas peripecias, el reportero consigue dominar a sus secuestradores, con la ayuda de Milú y del capitán Haddock, que aparecen en el último momento. Uno de los hermanos Pájaro o Ave logra huir.

Cuando el ladrón de carteras es finalmente detenido por Hernández y Fernández (un cleptómano que no puede resistir la tentación de robar carteras), Tintín encuentra la cartera de uno de los hermanos Pájaro o Ave, con lo que logra reunir los tres pergaminos. Juntos, indican unas coordenadas de latitud y longitud, que permitirán a Haddock y Tintín iniciar la búsqueda del tesoro del pirata Rackham el Rojo. La acción continúa en el siguiente álbum de la serie, El tesoro de Rackham el Rojo.

En este volumen Tintín descubre un misterioso manuscrito dentro de la maqueta de un barco, que le ha de conducir hacia el tesoro de Rackham el Rojo. El problema que hay es que existen tres copias diferentes del manuscrito, y que hay demasiada gente interesada en ellas.

El cómic hace de puente hacia el siguiente volumen. Me gusta que cada vez el Capitan Hadock tenga más presencia. ( )

The story in The Secret of the Unicorn and its sequel Red Rackham's Treasure is source from which Spielberg drew the bulk of the material for his movie The Adventures of Tintin, which was a good decision because this is probably the most loved of all the Tintin books (although I am partial to the two part series Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon). In The Secret of the Unicorn the roster of characters for the Tintin series finally takes full shape. The first of three two-part stories, and one of the best story lines of the entire book series, this volume begins the process of fully fleshing out Captain Haddock's character into the sharp edged, often inebriated, somewhat out-of-place patrician that fans of the series have come to know. This is also the story line that introduces the last regular characters on the series: the eccentric (and almost completely deaf) but brilliant Professor Calculus and the indefatigable butler Nestor. With the cast of characters complete, the story weaves together what has now become the standard Tintin versus gangsters story with some family history for Captain Haddock and a mystery pointing towards buried treasure.

The World War II era posed a problem for Hergé. Prior to the conflict in which his native Belgium was invaded and occupied, the Tintin series had begun to incorporate overtly political commentary in its stories, in some cases quite critical of the Axis powers. But with Belgium occupied and Hergé's publisher enduring government oversight, this was no longer possible, and the Tintin stories backed away from this political bent. In the first two books written during the occupation, Hergé moved back to his standard gangster driven plot (in The Crab with the Golden Claws) and experimented with outlandish science fiction (in The Shooting Star), neither of which produced particularly memorable stories. It wasn't until The Secret of the Unicorn that Hergé hit upon the formula that would work: pulp-style adventures in exotic but non-politically charged locales. The result was this story of pirates and lost treasure, and the following two book story involving Inca mummies and hidden temples found in The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun.

The book starts with some comic relief as Tintin runs across Thompson and Thomson while the detectives are in the middle of an investigation into a rash of pick pocketings in the local open air market. But before too long the real story rears its head when Tintin comes across a model ship that he purchases as a gift for Captain Haddock. The model ship draws a lot of interest as two other interested buyers immediately offer to buy the ship from Tintin, offering substantially more than he paid for it. Even after being refused, the ship collector Sakharine pursues Tintin to his apartment to renew his offer. In the Spielberg movie, Sakharine is developed into a sinister figure, but in the books, he is more or less just a minor speed bump in the story that vanishes in fairly short order. As with most Tintin stories, The Secret of the Unicorn is built on a healthy dose of coincidence, and when Captain Haddock sees the model ship, he immediately identifies it as the ship his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock captained several generations before, identifying it in the background of a portrait of Sir Francis that Captain Haddock just happened to have hanging in his apartment.

The plot thickens as Tintin's apartment is broken into and the model ship is stolen. Then when he goes to mistakenly accuse Sakharine of stealing the ship (discovering in the process that Sakharine owns an identical model ship), his apartment is broken into and ransacked again. (As an aside, Tintin is clearly a bibliophile, as his primary concern over the ransacking of his apartment appears to be the condition of his books). After some slapstick comedy when Thompson and Thomson stop by to investigate the break-ins, Tintin discovers an old scrap of paper behind a cabinet that apparently fell from the now missing model ship. Deducing that it is a clue to a hidden treasure, Tintin rushes back to Captain Haddock's apartment, and coincidence strikes again to drive the plot forward in the form of an old sea chest belonging to Sir Francis that just happened to be in Captain Haddock's possession - including a hat, cutlass, and most importantly, a journal detailing Sir Francis' exploits against the pirate Red Rackham.

It is this section more than any other that had me convinced the first time I read it that the Tintin series was set in the United Kingdom. The key element is that Sir Francis' ship the Unicorn flies the Union Jack, at least in the English language translation. Perhaps in the original French version the Unicorn hoists the Belgian flag, something that seems more likely given that the book was written during the years that Germany occupied Belgium while at war with the U.K. However, I don't know this for sure (not having a copy of the original French translation), and my twelve year-old self certainly didn't know. This coupled with numerous other small cures (such as Thompson and Thomson's references to Scotland Yard) led me to believe that Tintin, Haddock, and their other companions were British. I don't think it materially changes the story for them to be British or Belgian, but somehow it seems more aesthetically pleasing to me mentally for them to be in the U.K.

In any event, it turns out that Sir Francis had a run-in with the pirate Red Rackham which resulted in the sinking of both of their ships, but not before a hard-fought sword fight between the noble Sir Francis and the treacherous Rackham. During this confrontation, Sir Francis learned of the treasure that Rackham had acquired during his exploits, and after blowing up the Unicorn to keep it from falling into the hands of the pirates, created a series of clues to lead his descendants to the trove. In a substantial departure from the books, the movie The Adventures of Tintin changed the source of the treasure from Rackham's piratical endeavors to a secret cargo being carried by Haddock's ship on behalf of the Crown, which makes Haddock something of a traitor insofar as he failed to turn over the location of the treasure to the proper authorities when he returned home. Claiming pirate booty as one's own is one thing, claiming the contents of the cargo you are carrying for your government as your own is quite another. This whole sequence is told mostly via flashbacks as Haddock recounts the events to Tintin in his apartment (and not in a drink induced frenzy at a Foreign Legion outpost like in the movie), filling in Tintin and the reader on the key elements that make the scrap of paper Tintin found in his apartment meaningful.

But Tintin doesn't have the scrap of paper - the B-plot comes crashing into the A-plot as Tintin discovers his wallet has been stolen by a pickpocket. And then when Tintin takes Haddock to see Sakharine (and see if his model of the Unicorn has a scrap of paper hidden in its mast), they discover Sakharine has been attacked and his model stolen. Obviously someone is also after the treasure, and Tintin and Haddock almost get more clues when one of the gentlemen who had vied for ownership of Tintin's now-stolen model Unicorn at the beginning of the book shows up just in time to be downed by a drive-by shooting. When asked who was behind his shooting, he apparently has enough strength to point to some sparrows and say "there", but not enough to leave a less cryptic clue, like a name. Things begin to look up when Tintin's wallet is recovered (and Tintin has to help Thompson and Thomson with some basic detective work), but then take a turn for the worse when Tintin is chloroformed and kidnapped (as an aside, I have to wonder where the crooks in the Tintin universe get their supplies of chloroform - it seems at times that it is so common that they must be able to pick it up at the corner store).

Through his usual methods of investigation by being captured coupled with a villain who spills the beans at the first opportunity, Tintin foils the villains and solves the mystery. Along the way, there is some adventure and the first appearances of Marlinspike Hall and the long-suffering butler Nestor (who is in the employ of the villains at this point). Captain Haddock arrives with Thompson and Thomson just in time to save the day, and everything turns out okay. We also find out the meaning of the cryptic "sparrow" clue bestowed upon Tintin earlier, and it turns out to be a clue that was so cryptic that it really only makes sense if you already knew the answer. In other words, with what he thought was his dying breath, instead of giving a name, the character in question used that effort to hand out a clue that was certain to be incomprehensible to the recipients. It is also during this sequence that Tintin is once again knocked out by a couple blows to the head, and then displays his amazing punching prowess by slugging a pair of much larger men into unconsciousness.

Although this is only the first half of the story, the volume does come to a reasonable stopping point, wrapping up the portion of the story that relates to hunting for the treasure map quite nicely. Oddly, for a story about looking for lost pirate treasure from a ship that sank in the Caribbean, all of the action in the book takes place in Tintin's home country, making this the first book in the series in which Tintin does not cross any international borders. The other odd thing about the story is how quickly the villains go from antique dealers, to thieves, to attempted murderers - in Hergé's world it seems that once you get into smuggling or larceny that you are perfectly willing to scale up to murder without a second's thought. And your clueless butler will be willing to help you. All three of the two-part stories in the Tintin series are excellent, and represent the best of Hergé's work. Loaded with mystery, action, comedy, and fun, The Secret of the Unicorn is no exception, and is the first half of what I consider to be the second best Tintin story ever made.
