  2. Another wonderful adventure of tintin This used to be one of my favorite toons during my childhood In this adventure, tintin has got of physical than his holmes style Haddock was as usual Snowy has got a bit lesser role Thompson n Thomson are always a comic relief But the role of abdullah was hilarious It will create a serious of troubles n laughters in this episode On the whole this can be rated as one of the best episodes of the entire adventures of tintin

  4. Rather a dilatory and loosely plotted entry in the series, which to its credit the book wryly jokes about Captain haddock turns up out of the blue at one point to rescue Tintin, but each attempt on his part to explain the strange circumstances that brought him there in the nick of time is cut off finally, he storms off in the penultimate panel, huffing that at any rate, the story is not going to be told by HIM now We end with Abdullah painting the words The End on a wall, a simultaneous act of g [...]

  5. Although funny, I felt this adventure is not as well developed as the previous ones Somehow, a bit confusing or foggy Still, a lot of fun Maria Carmo,Lisbon, 20 January 2015.

  6. I wish it was called the black curse instead of Black Gold Unlike what it might sounds, reserving oil is not the best thing that happened to the oil rich countries

  7. Arabian peninsula religious cultural component diligently aesthetically render , Land of Black Gold Arabic words calligraphy repetitively ,

  8. The Tintin stories for anyone who has read them and understands their history can t be viewed as anything other than groundbreaking The beginnings of these stories have been around as long as the Lord of the Rings, the illustration and environments in the Tintin books are accurate and extremely detailed Anyone who has spent even a little time exploring Herge Georges Remi can see the painstaking research and adversity he worked through to compose the world around Tintin His ideas were ahead of hi [...]

  9. Kaikki Herg n sarjakuvat on tullut luettua lapsena, mutta esimerkiksi Tintit ovat suurimmaksi osaksi menneet yli hilseen, kun pienen ei ole tajunnut mit n maailmanpolitiikasta Nytp ajattelin lukea kaikki uudelleen ja aloitin Mustan kullan maasta, joka oli valittu l hikirjaston L hi it n yttelyyn.Sarjakuvaa oli nopea lukea, ja hahmojen el vyys yll tti ja ilahdutti Aiemmat muistoni Tinteist varmaan juuri lapsuuden tiet m tt myyden takia olivat hieman nihkeit seikkailut tuntuivat pitk stytt vilt ja [...]

  10. Another Tintin adventure that is full of laughter inducing scenes, Herge takes Tintin on a James Bond like adventure as he confronts a previous enemy involved in the contamination and sabotage of oil in an effort to start another world war Captain Haddock, the Thompson twins, and the outrageously obnoxious Abdullah are again sources of antics that can leave you in stitches.

  11. Dating from the late 30s, has a strong sense of impending war and the role of oil in fuelling conflict Plus a change.

  12. Another classic Tintin by one of my favourite authors Herge I love the humour that Thompson and Thomson brought to this story in particular.

  13. Another good adventure and while it s not one of the best, I still think it s worth it just to see Thompson and Tompson s crazy transformation D

  14. The Book Harry Potter and The Philosopher s Stone is by J.K Rowling and it is a fantasy magic adventure Mystery I chose this book because it is magic and adventure and it would tell me about the worlds that I would love to see It shows a boy my age facing troubles with his family and then being whisked away.What is it about It is about this boy named Harry Potter having to stay with some of his Aunt and Uncle and cousin because his mother and father died He hates his life and trying to get away [...]

  15. This wasn t the best Tintin comic by any stretch but it did have some good qualities First of all, this volume probably had the most realistic setting in the series so far Talking about the economic problems with oil in the middle east It did have some mystery, adventure, action and chases sprinkled here and there but still managing to stay within the realistic boundries of the realm they were in, the Middle East A strange, different and risky choice of setting but over all I think it brings som [...]

  16. Despite having lived in France for 10yrs, having seen Tintin on a Brussels rooftop from a TGV window, remembering the Herge s Adventures cartoons when I was a kid and the CGI film on telly recently, I have never read or watched any Tintin whatsoever, so this was my first foray For 1950, Land of Black Gold is pretty agreeable At 64 pages with lots of panels on each, the story is fairly convoluted and makes for a sizeable read, if a little heavy on the eyes in the A5 sized Egmont version I read Th [...]

  17. I had a lot of fun with this one Plenty of funny situations Not so much danger as there was tense mystery Why were the cars randomly exploding, who are the raiders, who s pulling all the strings It s very interesting I simply feel as if this story could have been made into 2 books Like it was filled with enough espionage and plot twists to be dragged out a little But that might have made it too long and boring not boring in plot but boring in the gaps where nothing happens The story flows quite [...]

  18. A good adventure in the series, never one of my favorites but some nice parts to it all the same Little Abdullah is a great character, he is a little brat of a son to an Emir that likes to play tricks He does however take a shining to Captain Haddock and he pops up again in a later book Also the Thompson twins going round in circles in the desert is great on second thoughts I probably like this one than I thought

  19. Cannot believe saying this the macguffin needed to be present Like how dare book, to intro this fascinating explosive undetectable thing in first couple pages then completely drop it until solution shows up off screen in final page.Still, the Thompson and Tompson shenanigans were worth it There s a minor blackface chara that oooohboy did not age well

  20. Part 15 of my actually happening big re read of the whole Tintin canon after decades I had not read this one before, and did not miss much.Verdict Disappointing as the majority of the story is Thomson Thompson driving through the desert and the spoiled brat of a Middle eastern ruler playing pranks on Tintin.

  21. This is the book where Captain Haddock comes all of a sudden to save Tintin from trouble and has no explanation how he managed to be there Other than that, it s an exciting book indeed
