Summary Of The Book

Tintin: The Black Island is the seventh story in The Adventures of Tintin comic series.

In Tintin: The Black Island, the protagonist sees that an unregistered plane has made an emergency landing in the Belgian countryside. He rushes over to help, but is then shot by the pilot. Later Tintin gets to know that an unregistered plane has crashed in Sussex, England. As his detective instincts kick in, he plans to go to England to investigate. While at the Brussels’ railway station, two men frame him for theft and get him arrested. However, Tintin escapes and reaches England. Unfortunately, he gets kidnapped by the same two men whom he had met at the train station. They tell him to jump off a cliff, but Snowy’s quick thinking saves the young Belgian.

Tintin finds the site of the plane crash, and learns about Dr. J. W. Müller, who tortures people inside of his mental institution. Tintin figures out that the evil doctor is the head of a gang of money counterfeiters. The printing press that is used to create false notes is hidden on the Black Island, which is located near Scotland. The locals tell Tintin that the island is haunted by a beast who kills human beings. However, that doesn’t stop the young detective from going to Black Island. What will Tintin do next? What is this beast that the locals speak of? Will Tintin be able to put a stop to the nefarious activities of the evil doctor?

Tintin: The Black Island was published in 1938 in black-and-white installments in Le Petit Vingtième. It was then converted into a coloured book, and was released in 1943. This edition of Tintin: The Black Island contains a guide, and extra facts for its readers.
