THIS VOLUME -

Volume 3 - Tintin and the Broken Ear; The Black Island; King Ottokar’s Sceptre

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.

Synopsis

The Adventures of Tintin: Vol 3 by Herge

Tintin and the Broken Ear - An Indian fetish is stolen from the Museum of Ethnography. Why? Much to Snowy's disapproval Tintin is soon up to his neck in one of his strangest and most exciting investigations, following a curious trail to South America, revolution, and General Alcazar.

The Black Island - Off the coast of northern Scotland lies the Black Island, its ruined castle a grim warning to intruders. Those who set foot on the rocky shores are never seen again. No one will dare to venture there from Kiltoch. The dark secret must be uncovered, and it is Tintin, the boy reporter, who makes the attempt. A chain of mysterious events leads first to a house in Sussex, then to Scotland to combat the unscrupulous Dr. Müller.

King Ottokar's Sceptre - When Tintin and Snowy travel to Syldavia with Professor Alembick, they find themselves mixed up in a rebel plot to depose the Syldavian king. If the king does not carry King Ottokar's sceptre in the royal procession he will lose his throne, and when the rebels manage to steal the sceptre the detectives Thomson and Thompson are called in. Tintin and Snowy must act fast before it's too late for the king, and possibly themselves.

About the Author

Herge

Tintin was created in 1929 by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé, then aged just 21, for a weekly children's newspaper supplement. Tintin is a young reporter, aided in his adventures by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). In Tintin, Hergé created a hero who embodied human qualities and virtues, without any faults.

The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most popular comics series of the twentieth century, with translations published in over 80 languages, and more than 230 million copies of the books sold worldwide.
