Land of Black Gold “The fight comes down to emir Ben Kalish Ezab and his rival who tries to take over his emirate.” –Hergé
Strange engine explosions occur while Thomson and Thompson are driving. For Tintin, the solution lies in Khemed, the black gold-producing country where Sheikh Bab El Her, Doctor Müller's assistant, seeks to overthrow Emir Ben Kalish Ezab.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
