THIS VOLUME -
Volume 5 - The Seven Crystal Balls; Prisoners of the Sun: Land of Black Gold
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 5 by Herge
The Seven Crystal Balls - Seven explorers are home from Peru; among their trophies is the mummy of Rascar Capac, looted from an Inca tomb. One by one the explorers are struck by a mysterious illness, and beside each lies the fragments of a crystal ball. Tintin and Captain Haddock are soon involved - They learn of the ancient curse upon those who violate the Inca's tomb. Then one night the mummy vanishes, and later, Professor Calculus is kidnapped. Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock take up the chase in the first part of a remarkable South American adventure.
Prisoners of the Sun - Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock have a kidnapping on their hands. Professor Calculus has vanished. His disappearance is certainly connected with an ancient curse of the Incas, and the trail leads the trio to Peru. But everyone fears the vengeance of the Prince of the Sun, and only Zorrino, the young orange-seller, will help them. In this sequel to The Seven Crystal Balls, Tintin is involved in one of his strangest and most colorful adventures.
Land of Black Gold - Who is trying to sabotage European supplies of gasoline and why? An international situation develops which threatens to result in war unless the saboteurs can be brought to justice. Tintin is called in, and he and Snowy are soon following the tracks of the evil and dangerous plotters to the deserts and towns of the Middle East, where their efforts to find them are complicated by hazards difficult even by Tintin's standards.
