Polyresin figure of Dr J W Müller who we first meet in The Black Island. He is the boss behind the international forgery gang. This image comes from page 21 of the adventure when the irate Doctor (aka Professor Smith from Land of Black Gold) gets his bum singed. Tintin has deftly hurled a rather nice looking side table at him, sending the Doctor into the fireplace and a roaring fire!
Now we may have stumbled on another error of sorts of Hergé’s, because later on in the story the nasty Doctor has his same outfit on but minus the signed jacket! Do you remember that Laszlo Carreidas had the same thing happen to his jacket in Flight 714 to Sydney but Hergé did amend that. Interesting eh? Keep your eyes alert when taking in a page from any of the adventures, so much to see.
