Which is your most favourite cover page? Mine was The Cigars of the Pharaoh - It was very depictive of the mystery of the Cigars and the Mummies.

I have two joint favourites - The Blue Lotus and Tintin In Tibet covers - for their incredible artwork.

New user here!
My two favourites are: Cigars of the Pharaoh (for the same reason) and Red Sea Sharks (the artwork is incredible, just like the idea [and the effect] of looking through a lens).
I think that the cover of "Shooting Star" is the worst. For those who doesn't read the book, it just looks like nonsense.

Probably Explorers on the Moon and Tintin in Tibet. Sometimes, we forget what a great artist Hergé was when it came down to portraying landscapes.

My least favorite is probably Secret of the Unicorn, just because that circle in the center with the Unicorn is out of place.

For me it's 'Destination Moon' I can just imagine Calculus shouting 'Look what the Goat created', over the noise of the jeep.

The artwork on the gantries is very well done also.

My favorite is definately The Blue Lotus, mainly because of its fantastic artwork.

My favourite cover is "The Black Island". I love the colours, the artwork and the whole feel.

I think King Ottokar's Sceptre has to be my favourite, though there are many good ones. I agree with MoonRocket that Secret of the Unicorn is poor because of the circle, with the murky yellow background not working for me either.

The Calculus Affair has to be the most unique one, huh?
