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 – Prisoners of the Sun

First published:1949

Tintin, his dog Snowy, and friend Captain Haddock arrive in Callao, Peru. There, they plan to intercept the arrival of the Pachacamac, a ship carrying their friend Professor Calculus, who is being held by kidnappers. Unfortunately, the ship has to be in quarantine for three weeks, due to reports of infectious disease on board. Tintin thinks the quarantine is staged and that night, he sneaks aboard the ship and learns from Chiquito, the former assistant of General Alcazar and one of the abductors, that Calculus is to be executed for wearing a bracelet belonging to the mummified Incan king Rascar Capac.

Tintin barely escapes the ship with his life, and he and Haddock alert the authorities; but the abductors evade the police and take Calculus to the Andes mountains.
