Tintin's shooting star

by Peter G on Jun 3, 2012

"The Shooting Star" is one of my favorite Tintin adventures. It's got action, humour, and a colorful final sequence. Walking home one night, Tintin sees a large star in the sky, a star that hadn't been there before. The astronomers have spotted it too, and predict it will colide with and end the Earth! The meteor causes an earthquake on impact, but fortunately that's all. According to some of their readings, the astronomers believe the meteorite is made of a mysterious new metal, and decide to make a trip by boat (led by Captain Haddock) to the Arctic Ocean to investigate. An oil company from Sao Rico has also decided to visit the meteor, to take the new metal for themselves. It becomes a race filled with sabotage and seasickness. Will Tintin and the astronomers be able to beat them to it? It's a very easy going, straightforward story, and I think that's why I like it so much. It's got a few elements of sci-fi to it (like the effects of the meteor on the Earth) and a dream sequence, which were a nice touch too. It's good to see Captain Haddock, it always is, but from the way the story starts, it is a bit unexpected. A nice surpise though. Definitely worth reading for fans of Tintin.
