THIS VOLUME -
Volume 6 - Land of Black Gold; Destination Moon; Explorers on the Moon
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 6 by Herge
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.
Destination Moon - Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock are suddenly called by Professor Calculus to the Sprodj Atomic Research Centre in Syldavia. They are amazed to find the Professor developing a space rocket; and Tintin and his friends are unaware of the dangers that await them. Despite the mishaps, the adventure sets off on the most hazardous journey ever undertaken by man.
Explorers on the Moon - Under the direction of Professor Calculus, the first manned rocket is hurtling through space. Onboard are Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, and their companions. The flight is perilous enough, but even greater hazards are in store once the rocket is safely landed on the Moon. The explorers have narrow escapes as they make great scientific discoveries - But there is treachery afoot. Tintin and Snowy have never faced such dangers, and their fate hangs precariously in the balance.
