The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn hasn’t hit American shores yet, so we don’t know how true the movie is to the books. The movie is actually a combination of three of the comic books: The Crab with the Golden Claws (1941), The Secret of the Unicorn (1943), and Red Rackham’s Treasure (1944). There is already talk of a sequel and perhaps more. We hope that Destination Moon (1953) and Explorers on the Moon (1954) are made into films. They are two of our favorites. The Land of the Black Gold (1950) would also be on our list, as well as The Calculus Affair (1956) and The Red Sea Sharks (1958).
Our next post will be a list of Tintin books in order of most favorite to least favorite. For the remainder of this post, we thought you might enjoy a comparison of some stills from the movie and their corresponding shots from the comics. They’re not perfect matches since the stories do diverge but close enough we say!
