The Adventures of Tintin Volume 3

By Hergé

One of the most iconic characters in children’s books

Join the world’s most famous travelling reporter in three exciting adventures as he visits the highlands of Scotland in The Black Island, solves a mysterious theft in King Ottokar’s Sceptre, and meets a certain Captain Haddock for the first time in The Crab with the Golden Claws.

The third of eight volumes containing Hergé’s best loved adventure stories, with three thrilling mysteries:

The Black Island
Wrongly accused of a theft, Tintin is led to set out with Snowy on an adventure to investigate a gang of forgers. 

King Ottokar’s Sceptre
Tintin travels to the Syldavia and uncovers a plot to dethrone King Muskar XII. But can he help the head of state before it’s too late?

The Crab with the Golden Claws
Faced with a drowned sailor, counterfeit coins and a ship full of opium, Tintin sets out on another adventure. Aboard the Karaboudjan, Tintin is introduced to Captain Haddock for the first time, and they are soon both facing a deathly thirst in the Sahara desert.

Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on extraordinary adventures spanning historical and political events. 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.

Hergé (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed over 20 titles in The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time.
