The Adventures of Tintin  is a series of 24 comics created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, who wrote under the pen name Hergé.

Its hero is Tintin, a courageous young Belgian reporter and adventurer aided by his faithful dog Snowy . Other allies include the brash and cynical Captain Haddock, the intelligent but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus , and the incompetent yet funny detectives Thomson and Thompson .

Its well-researched plots straddle the action-adventure and mystery genres and draw upon themes of politics, history and technology, offset by moments of slapstick comedy.

 

Tintin – Land of Black Gold

First published:1950

Across Europe, car engines are spontaneously exploding; this coincides with the spectre of a potential war throughout the continent, resulting in Captain Haddock being mobilised into the navy. Although detectives Thomson and Thompson initially suspect that the oil crisis is a scam intended to drive up business for a local roadside assistance company, Tintin learns from the managing director of Belgium’s leading oil company, Speedol, that it is a result of someone tampering with the petrol at its source, and discovers a conspiracy involving a crew member of one of their petrol tankers, the Speedol Star. The three work undercover as new members of the Star’s crew as it sets off for the Middle Eastern kingdom of Khemed.
