Synopsis

Destination New York by Herge

This is a less well-known but just as exciting and charming comic book adventure from the creator of Tintin. In Destination New York the Stratoship H.22, designed by Jo and Zette's father, suffers an attempted bombing. Jo and Zette fly it out of its hangar and unable to return they crash land near to the North Pole. There they face a race against time to return the plane to home and win the trans-Atlantic challenge. But they haven't counted on the efforts of the Stockrise brothers to scupper their plans. The Adventures of Jo, Zette and Jocko was created by Herge in the same comic book style as his most iconic character, Tintin, whose place amongst the classic children's characters still helps to sell over 100,000 copies every year in the UK, with an estimated 230 million sold worldwide since Herge first put pen to paper on him. Tintin was adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011.

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.
