A good beginning to the Adventures of Tintin
on 23 November 2001
The boy reporter makes his second appearance here in the heart of colonial Africa. This time he is trying to "bust" al Capone's diamond racket, something Capone holds against him even when he goes to America.
The artistic ability of Herge' never ceases to amaze, even though the plot is not as well developed as the later adventures. A visual delight which reads marvellously, if you know French of course!
A fine way to start you adventure with the boy reporter
