How do I rate Tintin books?

Tintin in America 4 - what ruins it is the chase between Tintin and Mr. Smiles in the Redskin City. Good thing that it was eliminated in the animated series.

Cigars of the Pharaoh 6- the madness of Sophocles Sarcophagus.
Blue Lotus 8- although the tale is excellent, the art is, well, why does Tintin look different here?
King Ottokar's Sceptre 9- the good man smokes while the bad guy doesn't.
Crab with the Golden Claws 10
Shooting Star 9 - great race to the meteorite.
Secret of The Unicorn 10
Red Rackham's Treasure 10
Seven Crystal Balls 6
Prisoners of the Sun 6
Land of Black Gold 5
Destination Moon 10
Explorers on the Moon 10
Calculus Affair 9
Red Sea Sharks 7
Tintin in Tibet 10
Tintin and the Picaros 9

Commentaries will be continued later. I'm called back to work.

Land of the Soviets
Tintin in the Congo
The Broken Ear (this May 2008)
The Black Island
The Castafiore Emerald (this May 2008)
Flight 714

Tintin in the Land of the Soviets 4
Tintin in the Congo 7
Tintin in America 7
Tintin in Cigars of the Pharaoh 7
The Blue Lotus 8
The Broken Ear 8
The Black Island 10
King Ottokar's Sceptre 7

Tintin and the Picaros 7
Tintin and Alph-Art 5

Basically, I know this is finished but I had to post mine! Soviets and Alph-Art were rubbish plainly because for Soviets Hergé was an inaccurate, inexperienced writer, and for Alph-Art a Tintin book minus Hergé equals lost in translation...

Hah, ol' Borduruian Thug has a sense of humour! Congo a zero though? Why's that?

Dupondt:

Because it has no redeeming quality. Notice though, that Bordurian Thug hates Lake of Sharks even more.
