The Adventures of TinTin Red Rackhams Treasure

Following ""The Secret of the Unicorn,"" having collected all the clues regarding the titular treasure, Tintin and Captain Haddock are prepared to go forth and find it. However, almost as important as the search for the treasure is our introduction to the final pivotal member of the Tintin family, as Professor Calculus offers the service of his small shark-proof submarine for exploring the ocean floor. Tintin refuses the offer, but it turns out that Professor Calculus always hears something other than what somebody is really saying. Adding to the fun are the Thompsons, who come along with orders to protect Tintin. ""Red Rackham's Treasure"" is mostly a pure adventure story, with Tintin using the small submarine and a deep sea diving suit to look for the treasure of the Unicorn. But there is still some detective work left to be done to decipher the final cryptic clues left by Sir Francis Haddock concerning the treasure's location. This is the last of the Tintin stories Herge wrote during World War II, and after this point we will definitely see his stories become much more allegorical in terms of post-War Europe.

A reprint of this classic comic for a new generation

Herge (pseudonym of Georges Remi), Belgian author and illustrator, created Tintin and produced 24 volumes of the internationally famous bande dessine by the time of his death. Known as the father of the modern European comic book, Herg's impeccable style and superb use of color won him international acclaim after the Second World War
