After Tintin & Haddock successfully escape from the Karaboudjan, they now find themselves lost in a desert. After passing out from the long walk through the vast hot sand they were rescued by an army that is stationed at a fort. After receiving water and camels for transportation, Tintin and Haddock head towards the nearest town. While they're there, Haddock discovers that the Karaboudjan is there only under a different name while Tintin discovers that Alan the Skipper who is leader of the crew's drug business is present in town. The only way to stop the mutiny crew is by finding the kingpin of the operations and Alan is Tintin's only link in finding the base of their operations. Written by J LeGault

The Crab with the Golden Claws (part 2)
29 March 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

Haddock and Tintin manage to take the plane, but during an electrical storm they crash in the Sahara desert. After fainting, they are picked up by some soldiers and they then trek to a Moroccan port. Tintin sees Allan, but loses him and Thompson and Thomson have gone under cover. While heading back to the Captain, Tintin sees Haddock being kidnapped by his corrupted crew. Knowing Allen will lead him to Haddock, he goes back to where he lost him before and waits for him. He leads Tintin to secret doorway into some hidden rooms filled with the canned opium and that of Haddock.

"The Crab with the Golden Claws" is Herge's ninth comic strip album of "The Adventures of Tintin" and the second episode (part 2 of 2) of Season 1. The second part of the story continues on his traditional detective work through North Africa, to discover where and who are the drug suppliers. This has everything form a plane ride through an electrical storm, speedboat chase, wandering through the desert and seeing mirages. While, Tintin might get sidetracked, the pacing is kept at a cracking temperament and the alcoholic rages of the firebrand Haddock always amuses. The adventure seems to be more grounded in reality (no treasure hunting or odd, new creations) and interlinked with more contemporary old fashioned rhythm. Some reason Tintin is always becoming the news, then actually reporting it and especially on this adventure. A straight-forward Tintin outing made lively because of the characters and provocative passages of actions and mystery
