    Interestingly, I didn t remember a thing about this installment of Tintin I wonder whether I ve missed it Anyway, it felt novel Nevertheless, it is yet another interesting adventure of Tintin This time Tintin s battle is against a gang who forge and counterfeit money There was quite enough pace and suspense for a one hour read And there was some comicality too which helped few chuckles Also now that the stories have a proper plot with a beginning and end, the adventures areenjoyable Interestingly, I didn t remember a thing about this installment of Tintin I wonder whether I ve missed it Anyway, it felt novel Nevertheless, it is yet another interesting adventure of Tintin This time Tintin s battle is against a gang who forge and counterfeit money There was quite enough pace and suspense for a one hour read And there was some comicality too which helped few chuckles Also now that the stories have a proper plot with a beginning and end, the adventures areenjoyable Overall, though not a favorite Tintin adventure, I enjoyed the read

    Tintin goes to Scotland4 February 2012 Tintin is wondering through the Belgian countryside, out for a nice leisurely stroll, when he sees a plane making an emergency landing Being the helpful young man that he is he goes to see if he can help but is immediately shot and left for dead However, as we have discovered, it is very hard to kill Tintin, and it turns out that the bullet only grazed him, and he decides that he must go and investigate, so he jumps on a train and travels to England after Tintin goes to Scotland4 February 2012 Tintin is wondering through the Belgian countryside, out for a nice leisurely stroll, when he sees a plane making an emergency landing Being the helpful young man that he is he goes to see if he can help but is immediately shot and left for dead However, as we have discovered, it is very hard to kill Tintin, and it turns out that the bullet only grazed him, and he decides that he must go and investigate, so he jumps on a train and travels to England after discovering that the same plane crashed near Cornwell This is the first Tintin album they seem to refer to the books as albums in which I discovered that Tintin was not English Up until that time I was always under the impression that Tintin lived in London I guess the English versions suggested that, particularly implying that Thompson and Thomson worked at Scotland Yard However, in this album it is clear that Tintin has to cross the English channel, and as a kid this left me confused, trying to work out where Tintin lived turns out that it is Brussels This is probably nowhere near the best of Herge s work, but it is still very amusing and quite quirky In this album Tintin is on the trail of some counterfeiters and travels to Scotland to confront them Once again the Thompson twins are on a false trail as they pursue Tintin for an alleged robbery on the train We have seen this aspect of the twins before, where they would rescue Tintin because they wanted to be the ones that arrested him In this album we are also introduced to Loch Lommond whiskey, and we discover that Snowy as a taste for it This album has been revised a few times, and I suspect that the version that I read was one of the later versions The reason I say this is because when he travels from Brussels to the English coast, the train travels on an electrified track Also, at the end, when he leaves Scotland, he leaves by a large passenger jet, something that I do not believe was available in 1937 though Hitler had begun using the plane as a means of campaigning, and large planes had been built to drop bombs on Germany during the war I m not sure if you could consider it anachronistic though since many of the later editions of Tintin had been moved into a 60s time period, though we do notice that he does travel by ship often particularly in the Blue Lotus and Tintin in America where he travels by ship to China and America respectively In the later albums we begin to see him travellingby plane, to Flight 714 where we discover them in a modern airport travelling by Lear Jet This album is still a good album, and scenes where the huge gorilla is running away from little Snowy is quite impressive I note that Snowy seems to speak a lot less here, though the attitude of Tintin towards his dog has changed since the original album where Tintin would constantly chastise him for not being obedient however we see Tintin punish Snowy for his alcoholism in this particular story

    Okay now, there are a few things that Snowy gets up to in this particular adventure that I would advice against allowing your dog to do at home or abroad Tintin is once again investigating a suspicious incident, dealing with danger and avoiding a mess with Thomson and Thompson I forgot how enjoyable these are to read on a summer s evening If you want to read these with your kids, then just bring up the fact that this is the way people used to see things and be sure to let them know that not Okay now, there are a few things that Snowy gets up to in this particular adventure that I would advice against allowing your dog to do at home or abroad Tintin is once again investigating a suspicious incident, dealing with danger and avoiding a mess with Thomson and Thompson I forgot how enjoyable these are to read on a summer s evening If you want to read these with your kids, then just bring up the fact that this is the way people used to see things and be sure to let them know that not all people saw things this way, we can t deny history, it is part of who we are today and we can t keep changing all of our past literary works to suit our politically correct world today because we are then not sharing the real writer s creation It s important that we are true to the time in which these were written and let us not deny our past It also shows that we have made progress Enjoy these stories for the true adventures that they are meant to be

    I have loved the Tintin books since childhood The other day I came across a list on Pinterest naming the 50 best Graphic Novels and this was on it I checked it out from my Library and re read itonly to be a bit disappointed There are some constants about Herge s work that have always drawn me in Tintin s bravery, the handsome artwork, the colorful characters But the best part was always Tintin s deductive and or inductive reasoning to find a way out of trouble In this book that was lack I have loved the Tintin books since childhood The other day I came across a list on Pinterest naming the 50 best Graphic Novels and this was on it I checked it out from my Library and re read itonly to be a bit disappointed There are some constants about Herge s work that have always drawn me in Tintin s bravery, the handsome artwork, the colorful characters But the best part was always Tintin s deductive and or inductive reasoning to find a way out of trouble In this book that was lacking So was the Captain, with his blistering barnacles All in all, it s still Herge, but not at his best
