Published in 1954, Explorers on the Moon is the seventeenth in the series of the Adventures of Tintin. Following on from Destination Moon, it finds Professor Calculus taking Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock and Frank Wolff to the moon in his rocket. But things are not as they seem. Written over a decade before the Apollo 11 moon landing, Herge was very much of his time but was keen to ensure the book was as scientifically accurate as could possibly be. Following the huge success of the Spielberg/Jackson feature film of Tintin, this is the perfect time to introduce new fans to rest of the young Belgian reporter's adventures.
In Tintin and the Picaros, Tintin, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and Snowy help General Alcazar plan a coup to snatch power back from his rival. First published in 1976, this is the final completed book in Herge's series and will appeal to the new legion of fans inspired by the Steven Spielberg feature film.
Destination Moon is Belgian comic-book author Herge's sixteenth story in The Adventures of Tintin series. Professor Calculus is building a space rocket that will fly from Earth to the moon, and Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock head off on what is bound to be a hazardous journey. Set in the 1950s and very much of its time, this adventure will delight fans of Tintin - including those who have enjoyed watching the feature film.
Written by Greg (Michel Regnier) and supervised by Herge, The Lake of Sharks is based on Raymond Leblanc's animated Tintin film of the same name from 1972. Tintin and his loyal friends are on the trail of crooks, finding themselves in Syldavia, a country in the Balkans. This comic book will appeal to fans of both the animated film and the new feature film that stars Jamie Bell and Daniel Craig.
As well as becoming the star of a major film, Herge's Tintin and his faithul dog Snowy have been entertaining readers of all ages for many generations. Professor Calculus has invented a machine that can destroy objects with soundwaves - and it has caught the eye of the Bordurian secret services. Determined to steal the machine, they decide to kidnap Calculus and take him to Borduria when their plans are foiled.
Tintin and the Broken Ear follows the young Belgian investigator as he sets off to track down a missing South American idol stolen from a museum in Brussels. Any new Tintin fans converted after seeing the Spielberg film starring Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell will relish this witty tale. Originally written in 1935, Tintin and the Broken Ear is very much a product of its time but retains an enduring appeal that is sure to engage reluctant readers.
