    Golf Tango Fox Is Back!

    Another fab story, with perhaps the best opening ever... the discussion about the Western and bumping into General Alcazar, who they've just been talking about. Dear old Zarzar is only one of ten reappearances in this book, the others including Golf Tango Fox himself, the nasally gifted Rastapopulous; his scurvy henchman Allan and (how could I leave her till last?) Castafiore, or as the Captain calls her during their (sadly) brief meeting, 'Castoroili'! It pulls plenty of punches and doesn't waste a moment. Best of all has to be the page with all the newspaper cuttings... but the Captain's battle with his number one fan, the awful Abdullah, is great too... I can't praise it enough, I'm afraid.

    This has nothing to do with sharks...

    Except perhaps figuratively: Slave-trader=shark? Anyway. When the Emir's son Abdullah is sent to Marlinspike to stay for a time because the Emir is in danger, Tintin and the Captain decide to leave as they have put up with enough pranks from the boy. So they go to Khemed to see the Emir and perhaps try to rescue him as well. But when they find out from him that his deposer Bab El Ehr is trafficking in slaves, Tintin decides to put an end to that if he possibly can. He and the captain manage to get on a slave ship. After surviving many dangers - explosives, guns, shipwreck, and a chance meeting with the Milanese nightingale Bianca Castafiore - they end up saving a whole shipload of Negroes from being sold as slaves. This is a fantastic story. One of the frames is worth getting the book - the picture of Captain Haddock with Castafiore.

    I am Tintin's number one fan. This is one of my favorite books i

    I am Tintin's number one fan. This is one of my favorite books in the series. I like as much as Tintin in Tibet, which is saying a lot! It's hilarious, and Tintin's noble determination to free the slaves lives up to expectations. To be honest, Herge rocks, and he did great on this one! I only have one question: WHERE ARE CHANG AND ZORRINO?!?!?!?! They're so awesome!!!!!!!!!!
