Belgian artist Herge wrote many adventures for his cartoon hero Tintin, a young journalist, and many recurring characters, including Tintin's faithful dog Snowy, his seafaring friend Captain Haddock, the absent-minded and hilariously deaf Professor Calculus, and the bumbling detectives Thompson and Thomson. Herge's Tintin stories combined adventure and humor, often in exotic locales. Three of the best are captured in Volume Five of a series which includes all 21 completed stories.

In "Land of Black Gold", Tintin's investigation of a plot to contaminate oil supplies puts him first on a ship as a radio operator, then ashore in Arabia during a coup. His fearless pursuit of a trail of clues brings him face to face with a familar villain (from "The Black Isle") and leads to a desperate race to save the life of the son of the local Emir. The bumbling detectives Thompson and Thomson make a trademark appearences when they accidentally ingest some mysterious pills.

In "Destination Moon" and "Explorers on the Moon", a two-part adventure, Tintin and Captain Haddock are summoned to the Balkan state of Syldavia to join Professor Calculus' rocket project. Although dogged by sabotage attempts, the Moon rocket eventually lifts off, taking Tintin, Snowy, the reluctant astronaut Captain Haddock, and the Professor on a dangerous voyage to the Moon. On the surface of the Moon, the sabotage plot will reappear in even more lethal form. The explorers will race a dwindling oxygen supply back to the safety of Earth.

Although these stories were written over half a century ago, Herge's simple but dramatically effective artwork and stories hold up extraordinarily well. This volume and the Tintin series are very highly recommended to Tintin fans of all ages.

Of the seven volumes that make up the "Adventures of Tintin," Volume 5 is my favorite. It includes both the first story by Hergé that I ever read with "Land of Black Gold," and also my favorite two-part Tintin adventure when out young intrepid reporter, Snowy, and their friends head for the moon. I realize the science fiction aspects of that particular pair of tales makes them atypical Tintin adventures, but Hergé's attention to detail makes the story stand out quite well, even in comparison to science fiction films that were putting men on the moon at that time.

Because "Land of Black Gold" was the first Adventure of Tintin I ever read it has a special place in my heart. It seems that all around the world cars (or lighters) using petrol are exploding. In a storyline eerily prescient of what would happen decades later with the rise of OPEC, the world is on the brink of an oil crisis. In the Middle East the evil Sheik Bab El Ehr tries to overthrow Sheik Ben Kalish Ezab, so Tintin heads to the Middle East to save the day. Throwing a monkey wrench into the proceedings, in addition to the omnipresent evil agents and hapless Thompson brothers, is Abdullah, son of Sheik ben Kalish Ezab, who pulls a constant string of practical jokes on everybody in sight (Historical Note: This is where the Thom(p)sons first develop their habit of becoming extremely hairy at inopportune moments).

I always think of Tintin as constituting "realistic absurdity," which reflects the way our hero plunges on despite the lunacy around him, which exists mainly in the characters rather than the situation. This delicate balance seems to be reflected even in Herge's artwork, where his "clear-line" style combines iconic characters with unusually realistic backgrounds, appeals to me. I also admire his remarkable restraint with Snowy, who "talks" less than any other "talking" dog in comic book history. These are truly timeless tales (More Historical Notes: "Tintin in the Land of Black Gold" was the adventure in progress in "Le Vingtieme Siecle" when German troops invaded Belgium on May 10, 1940. Herge suspended the story for eight years and actually began another adventure, "The Crab with the Golden Claws," in the interim, which was published in "Le Soir," one of the few newspapers authorized during the German occupation).

"Destination Moon" ("Objectif Lune") gives a detailed account on the preparation and the launching of the expedition to the Moon from the Sprodj Atomic Research Center in Syldavaia using the rocket designed by Professor Calculus. This involves the Thom(p)sons in what they think is Syldavian national dress and a whole bunch of bear clubs who love honey sandwiches. Of course the mission is in danger from enemy spies from Klow trying to thwart the mission, so there is some political intrigue and danger mixed in with the science fiction (and danger). This Tintin adventure has one of my favorite sequences in the entire series and it was not the cliffhanger ending with Tintin and the crew heading to the moon. It comes when Captain Haddock dismisses the preparations and accuses Calculus of "acting the goat." The normal placid professor goes off the deep end and drags the captain to show him the spaceship destined for the moon, demanding to know if that is what the good captain means by "acting the goat." The worm finally turning is one of those great moments you cherish in a series because it has been so long in coming.

What makes "Explorers on the Moon" ("On a Marche Sur La Lune") so fascinating is the documentary detail that Herge infuses into the story as Tintin walks on the moon (where he declares: "I've walked a few steps!...For the first time n the history of mankind there is an EXPLORER ON THE MOON!"). I cannot think of a 1950s science fiction film that predicts as accurately what happened when Apollo 11 went to the moon a decade and a half later. One of the chief charms of Herge's artwork has always been the way his caricature drawings of Tintin and friends are contrasted by the realistic backgrounds, and this artistic style achieves its apex when we see the spaceship approaching the moon. "Explorers on the Moon" would work as a straight-forward first man on the moon type story, but, of course, in Herge's hands it becomes so much more. Together these volumes constitute Tintin's greatest adventure if for no other reason than how can you top being the first man on the moon?

Throughout the past 1-2 years, I bought the Tin Tin series for my son who was 10-11 years old. He loves each of these books and they will never be mistreated. The pictures are beautiful and the pages are high quality- a nice glossy finish. These books are perfect for any age, in my opinion.

These will be saved in the family for many years to come.

Tintin is a classic. You will love it or hate it. Compared to contemporary use of the page this feels dated, cramped, overly text filled. Since I grew up reading American superhero comics from the 70s and 80s the page dynamics do not bother me. Newer readers may be jarred, but the plot is fun.

my child started reading these books since she was 7 and still loves them.
As a co-incidence, she is nine years now and is currently reading Tin Tin while I am writing this review

My son is a TINTIN collector, I wanted to complete the volume for him for some reason those books we buy locally do not match the set I found online. he has now 2 of the volume 1, 2, 3 and 5 but the inside stories are not the same even though it's the same printing.
The set I found online is by Little Brown and the ones I bought locally is by Egmont.

Conditiona = Good? More like like New! Great book from a great seller?

Tough to read some of the smaller text, but a great way to enjoy TinTin.
