The Valley of the Cobras

by Hergé; trans. Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper & Michael Turner (Casterman, 1957)

Book cover: “The Valley of the Cobras” by Hergé; trans. Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper & Michael Turner (Casterman, 1957)

In this final book of the series, Hergé at last strikes the right balance, giving free reign to slapstick antics while more or less side-lining Jo and Zette (though still depicting them as adventurous mini Tintins; Jocko serves as a surrogate Snowy).
