Professor Calculus has invented a machine that can duplicate anything and Rastapopoulous tries to lure Calculus and Tintin away by kidnapping two children. I saw this movie many times as a child and read the book just as many times (the book is an adaptation of the film) and it's one of my favorite books, but I can't tell whether it's because it's high quality or if it's because I'm nostalgic about it. Highly enjoyable regardless. ( )

Professor Calculus has developed a 3D photocopier, but fears that unidentified crooks, related to a series of art forgeries, are planning to steal it. To prevent this, he has hired the detectives Thomson and Thompson as bodyguards, and also invited his friends Tintin and Captain Haddock to his rented villa in Syldavia, on the shores of the artificial Lake Flechizaff. Soon enough, mysterious things start to happen...

It is hardly surprising that this album, with competent but uninspired art by Bob de Moor, was one of the reasons why Hergé decided not to let anyone continue Tintin after his death. The story in all its silliness just about works as a film; as a comic strip, it's flat, much too clearly adapted from another medium, and slightly wooden. ( )

Book description
Not actually by Hergé, though it seems to be commonly attributed to him on e.g. Amazon. It's adapted from an animated film which Hergé merely supervised, directed by Raymond LeBlanc and written by Greg (Michel Regnier).
