5. Tintin in America

Tintin in America

Ok, this was an improvement over the first two Tintin books. Not a huge improvement, but it was better. I think it was just paced slightly better--there wasn't necessarily a full cliffhanger every 10-12 panels, sometimes the cliffhangers took a full 16-18 panels before they were reached. Plus the visual gags of the lynch mob hanging Snowy right next to Tintin and the cow standing on the conveyor belt at the cannery were the funniest things I've seen yet from these books. Like I said, this isn't great, but you could see that Herge was starting to grow slightly as a writer. 64 pages. Grade: C+
