Identification needed: Story about twins flying to New York?

#1 · Posted: 25 Nov 2011 00:29
I'm new here, I've been a long time fan of Tintin and am very excited about the up coming movie.

Of all the Tintin comics (I've read them all ) I must say that The Calculus Affair was the best. The car chases and the plot, plus the fact that after Explorers on the Moon Tintin finds himself inside a tank again.

However I do have one question that’s totally Tintin related.

When I was a kid I had a two volume comics written by Hergé, about two kids, twins to be exact.

They had to fly their father's experimental plane and reach New York. I can't remember the title – can anyone help?

That would be The Adventures of Jo, Zette and Jocko: The Stratoship H.22- Volume 1: Mr. Pumps Legacy and Volume 2: Destination New York

Yeah, I remember now. Mr Pump was a speed freak and his mansion had all the contraptions to make things faster. He died when his car crashed while racing around his own personal circuit. Thanks, its all coming back now.
