“The Seven Crystal Balls, where Castafiore and Alcazar return …” –Hergé
Inca king Rascar Capac's mummy seems to cast a curse on all those who try to seize it. Tintin makes this discovery under dramatic circumstances and—even worse!—Calculus is abducted by the Sun worshippers.
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.
