Well, I guess it does, but it is so politically incorrect!

Very true but at the time it would have been normal though, I dont agree at all with the way herge portrayed the congo people. It is wrong but i look past that to the story and characters which we love.

People learn from mistakes

Well, I guess the only problem is that times change.

Black Island 8
King Ottokar's Sceptre 9
Crab with the Golden Claws 10
Shooting Star 8
Secret of the Unicorn 6

Tintin and the Picaros 7


My ratings are based on the quality of artwork and narrative flow. Hence I feel the highly rated Prisoners of the Sun is too broken up with repetitive-type incidents which don't go anywhere, compared to Flight 714 (which seems to divide opinion) which has continuous visual impact and flow, combined with more sophisticated and interesting character interaction.
The beautiful Crab with the Golden Claws is like a vivid exotic dream, and has no redundant filler, it keeps one guessing and in suspense from beginning to end.
