Herge's classic comic book creation Tintin is one of the most iconic characters in children's books. These highly collectible editions of the original 24 adventures will delight Tintin fans old and new. Perfect for lovers of graphic novels, mysteries and historical adventures. The world's most famous travelling reporter struggles to keep his feet on the ground as his adventures take him to the moon! Following on from the events of Destination Moon, Tintin finds himself in a rocket on a collision course with the moon. And with Snowy the dog, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus and the Thompson twins aboard, things quickly spiral further and further out of control.

Review:

Concluding the journey that began in Destination Moon, Tintin, Captain Haddock, and Professor Calculus are on their way to the moon, but unforeseen circumstances--innocent and otherwise--threaten the best-laid plans. Ever since it was first published in 1953, this technologically fascinating tale has probably been many kids' first glimpse of the mechanics involved in space travel, but the plot is as riveting as anything Herge ever wrote. --David Horiuchi

From the Back Cover:

The first manned rocked, bound for the Moon, has just launched from the Sprodj Atomic Research Centre in Syldavia. On board are Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and the engineer Frank Wolff. At the Centre, intense efforts are being made to establish radio contact with the rocket's passengers out in space. Tintin and his friends have fainted from the acceleration on launching. Their recovery is anxiously awaited. The wireless masts stand sentinel in the night sky, but they receive no message...
