The Black Island by Hergé.


Title: Tintin in America.
Author: Hergé.
Genre: Fiction, graphic novel, humour, adventure, mystery.
Country: Belgium.
Language: French.
Publication Date: 1938.
Summary: Off to investigate a mysterious plane crash, Tintin is onto something big! Someone is trying to keep him away from the crash site, but Tintin manages to escape without harm. Soon the reporter is hot on the trail of a suspicious and dangerous doctor, while two inept detectives are on his tail, not without turning everything they touch to chaos. The case leads Tintin to Scotland, where he learns of a monster that roams the spooky Black Island. Will Tintin find out what the cooks are up to, or will he fall victim to the terrifying beast?

My rating: 8.5/10.
