    TINTIN ROX!!!

    Not one of Herge's best, yet still highly interesting.Captain Haddock is still his lively self,and has some classic moments. The Thompson Twins make an appearance, and the book is altogether quite satisfying.

    Look What the Goat Created!

    "All aboard the bus-no, sorry, the rocket-to the Moon..." So declares the Captain, in fits of laughter-and this, unbeknownst to him, was to have hard-hitting consequences... The Moon adventure is deservedly one of the best-known in the series but, as in 'Secret of the Unicorn', it's obviously one of two and takes a while to get into its stride. At times the scientific banter can get a little anal, but this is relieved by the comic set-pieces, like the Thom(p)sons trying to arrest a skeleton, or poor old Captain blundering along in a universe that really seems to have it in for him... This is notable for showing a whole new layer to Calculus-one, as multi-talented genius (who could have guessed that someone who started out as a home inventor would get embroiled in rocket science?) and the other as having a temper that rivals, if not succeeds, the more immediately visible one of the Captain- "ACTING THE GOAT?!!!!!" As funny and vivid as ever, but roll on Part 2...

    Stellar - or shall I say Lunar?

    Upon their return from Arabia, Tintin and Captain Haddock find that Calculus has left for Syldavia, without leaving any explanation until he wires them to join him in Syldavia. Once there, Tintin and the captain are driven to an atomic research centre in the Zmylpathian mountains, where they meet engineer Frank Wolff and Mr Baxter, director, and of course find Calculus as well. The Thompsons turn up in ridiculous Greek costumes one day, and in trying to discover the whereabouts of the traitor who is handing secrets over to outside spies, arrest a skeleton from the doctor's room at the Centre and are electrocuted. Meanwhile a fall knocks Calculus silly and he loses his memory; Calculus' ear-trumpet and the Captain's pipe get switched with very smokey results. Tintin is shot while chasing the spies, and the trial rocket has to be blown up in flight when it begins to be controlled by a radio stronger than theirs. Who is the villain who is trying to steal the plans and take over the rocket? There must be someone IN the Centre who has betrayed the secrets - but everyone seems above suspicion. The book ends with Mr Baxter and the man in the control room trying to make radio contact with the passengers of the rocket taking them to the Moon. Wonderful story. Plenty of humourous moments, primarily due to the Thompsons and the Captain, who continually makes a mess of everything.
