Quick & Flupke: Under Full Sail by Herge

Classic humour strips from the creator of Tintin, Herge. Laugh along with the hilarious adventures of two street urchins, Quick and Flupke, as they get into all kinds of scrapes. A must for fans and collectors of Tintin. Under Full Sail: A bizarre camping trip, Flupke's career as an artist and a very good book feature in this volume. More tongue in cheek than The Adventures of Tintin, but still with the same distinctive artwork style that has helped his classic children's characters sell over 230 million copies worldwide. Two of The Adventures of Tintin were adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011.

About the Author


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.
