THIS VOLUME -
Volume 2 - Tintin in America; The Cigars of the Pharaoh; The Blue Lotus
Tintin, the most celebrated boy-detective, has been given a highly attractive and distinctive new look in handsome, small scale editions which read more like books. Each volume contains two or three of the original Tintin titles which, though reduced in size, reproduce the illustrations and the text as boldly and brightly as the originals. For collectors, existing fans of Tintin and for the ever-growing number of new recruits, these 8 volumes include every Tintin title including Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, Tintin in the Congo and one unfinished title that was published after the author’s death. They really are an essential purchase for young and old alike.

The Adventures of Tintin: Vol 2 by Herge
Tintin in America -Tintin goes to America, to Chicago, the territory of gangster, Al Capone; the world of cowboys and Indians and the Wild West. Undaunted, Tintin and Snowy make their way through hilarity and danger to yet another triumph of virtue over crime.
The Cigars of the Pharaoh - Scores of Egyptologists have tried to find the lost tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh; every single one has vanished. When Tintin and Snowy meet the eccentric Egyptologist, Doctor Sarcophagus, they are soon involved in the search themselves—and find that the tomb contains a more sinister secret than sand and mummies. Following the clue of a mysterious symbol on a cigar band, Tintin and Snowy clash with a gang of drug smugglers and are off on a dizzy chase to Arabia and India, plunging headlong into another dangerous battle of wits with an international gangster.
The Blue Lotus - The story is set in 1931. At that time Japanese troops were occupying parts of the Chinese mainland, and Shanghai, the great seaport at the mouth of the Yangtze Kiang (River), possessed an International Settlement, a trading base in China for Western nations, administered by the British and Americans. Hergé based his narrative freely upon the events of the time, including the blowing-up of the South Manchurian railway, which led to further incursions by Japan into China and ultimately to Japan's resignation from the League of Nations in 1933.
