30.5 x 22.5 x 0.8 Weight (gm): 439 The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of comic strips created by Belgi...an artist Herge the pen name of Georges Remi (1907 1983). The series first appeared in French in Le Petit Vingtieme, a children's supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtieme Siecle on 10 January 1929. Set in a painstakingly researched world closely mirroring our own, Herge's Tintin series continues to be a favorite of readers and critics alike 80 years later.The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian reporter. He is aided in his adventures from the beginning by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). Later, popular additions to the cast included the brash, cynical and grumpy Captain Haddock, the bright but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus (Professeur Tournesol) and other colorful supporting characters such as the incompetent detectives Thomson and Thompson (Dupond et Dupont). Herge himself features in several of the comics as a background character; as do his assistants in some instances.The success of the series saw the serialized strips collected into a series of albums (24 in all), spun into a successful magazine and adapted for film and theatre. The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in over 50 languages and more than 200 million copies of the books sold to date. The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Herge's signature ligne claire style. Engaging, well-researched plots straddle a variety of genres: swashbuckling adventures with elements of fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. The stories within the Tintin series always feature slapstick humor, accompanied in later albums by sophisticated satire, and political and cultural commentary. read more

Excerpt from A Knight of the WildernessLL New Salem, tingling with excitement, was down by Cameron's dam. It was not Often that ex...citement came to that little cluster of log cabins perched on the banks of the Sangamon River in the year Of our Lord 1831. They had their births and their burials, the people of New Salem, and their wooings and their weddings; but a village of a dozen or more log houses cannot well keep itself fully awake with stimulation so meager.Now and then the outer world permitted them a wanderer with gossip from Vandalia; or from Louisville, if their fortune ran strong. Occasionally an itinerant preacher passed that way and aroused them to a state of pleasurable panic. At intervals the boys from Clary's Grove paid them a rough, rol licking call in facetious mood, making the present exhilarating and leaving the future uncertain; but the agreeable sensations which might have been de rived from that form of diversion were marred by danger to life, limb, and law which usually attended these visits.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
