Join the world's most famous travelling reporter in three exciting adventures as he heads for the Middle East, discovers a space rocket and heads for the moon.

Land of Black Gold

Boom! Doctored petrol is blowing up vehicles all around the country. Determined to find the culprits, Tintin heads for the Middle East, but he is in for a nasty shock when he encounters a familiar face in the desert.

Destination Moon

Tintin and Captain Haddock are amazed to find that Professor Calculus is planning a top-secret project from the Sprodj Atomic Research Centre in Syldavia. And before our intrepid hero knows it, the next stop on this adventure is . . . Space.

Explorers on the Moon

Following on from the events of Destination Moon, Tintin finds himself in a rocket on a collision course with the moon. And with Snowy the dog, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and the Thompson twins aboard, things quickly spiral further and further out of control.

Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries.

Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th.

The Adventures of Tintin Volume 1 contains the first 2 TinTin Stories.
Land of the Soviets and Tintin in the Congo.
Like most Kids of the 70s Tin Tin was the greatest. That being said.
There is a reason the first 2 stories took a long time to be released.
These were not released in English till just recently.
Land of the Soviets is only B/W and contains none of the crisp clean art TinTin is known for.
The Story is all over the place.
Tintin in the Congo is a racist and animal cruelty shmorgishborg.
TinTin going on the hunt to kill an elephant for the tusks.
Natives treated as imbeciles, Worship Statues of TinTin and Snowy for there White like powers.

These Stories are a product of there time and would never been published today for kids.
If you want your Kids to Experience the magic of TinTin go to Volume 2, If your older and want to experience a historical TinTin this is for you.

This description is wrong. This description is for Volume 7 of the Tintin series. Volume 4 of the Tintin series actually contains: Red Rackham's Treasure, The Seven Crystal Balls, and Prisoners of the Sun.
