“Dear Professor Calculus! I never imagined how important he would become. He first appears with his little shark-shaped, pocket-size submarine.” –Hergé
Tintin travels to the Caribbean to find the treasure that was once amassed by pirate Red Rackham, the eternal enemy of Captain Haddock's ancestor. A newcomer character, Professor Calculus, may hold the key to this riddle.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
