The Castafiore Emerald (Tintin #21)

Author(s): Hergé

Tintin and Asterix

In The Castafiore Emerald (1963), all the characters from the series gather in Marlinspike Hall for a real comedy classic behind closed doors. Resolutely turning his back on the adventure genre, Herge concentrates on describing the difficulties of communication between human beings. This is the "anti-adventure", full of misunderstandings, a comedy of errors.

Product Information

Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.
