This one is a touch scattered. ( )

A gripping story - if a tad forgettable...? Doesn't have the same sense of place (i.e. treasure island, space, incas) that the other golden era Tintins do. ( )

El asunto Tornasol (L'affaire Tournesol) es el decimoctavo álbum de la serie Las aventuras de Tintín, escrito e ilustrado por el artista belga Hergé.

La historia comienza con Tintín y el capitán Haddock de vuelta a Moulinsart, cuando son sorprendidos por una tormenta, una extraña tormenta que provoca la rotura de espejos y jarrones en todo el palacio. La extraña tormenta resulta ser las pruebas de un generador de ultrasonidos desarrollada por el profesor Tornasol, que desaparecerá unos días después en una conferencia en Suiza.

Tintín y Haddock se reúnen en Ginebra para poder seguir su pista, y justo cuando están a punto de liberarlo de sus secuestradores, los bordurios, Tornasol es de nuevo secuestrado, esta vez por los syldavos. Sin embargo los espías de Syldavia no son capaces de retener a Tornasol que vuelve a ser secuestrado por Borduria y trasladado a Szohôd. Finalmente con la ayuda de Bianca Castafiore consiguen rescatar a Tornasol, quien decide destruir los planos de su invento para evitar que se convierta en un arma.

En esta historia vuelve a reflejarse la tensión y rivalidad existentes entre Syldavia y Borduria, como reflejo de la situación vivida entre los bloques comunista y capitalista en esa época.

Tintin is one of those series of books that you read one and wonder how Herge is going to be able to top it, and sure enough he comes along with a comic that pretty much tops all of the previous ones that he has written. Unfortunately, as the bar gets raised, it becomes more and more difficult to exceed expectations. This, I believe, is the case with The Calculus Affair. Some have suggested that the Calculus Affair is the beginning of the final stage of the Tintin comics. All of the characters have been developed and the style has been perfected, but in a way, The Calculus Affair literally stands out on its own.
This is a spy story where Cuthbert Calculus has developed a device that can be weaponised and as such there is a struggle between the superpowers to obtain this device. In the story the two superpowers are represented by the countries of Borduria and Syldavia, and while in Tintin they are a couple of small Eastern European countries they represent the larger Communist - Capitalist divide. However, Herge is not necessarily labelling them as such, theough we see that Borduria is representative of a police state where as Syldavia is not. What is even more interesting is that up until now we were under the impression that Syldavia was a good country, however in this album they become the antagonists alongside Borduria in that both countries want to weaponise Cuthbert's invention against his wishes.
What makes this comic stand out though is not the cold war nature of this spy thriller (and the Cold War was ramping up at this stage, as well as the nuclear arms race) but that there is so much going on that has absolutely nothing to do with the story itself. It is almost as if the spy story takes a back step to the absurd comedy that permeates this story. For instance, we have the introduction of Joylon Wagg, an insurance salesman that seeks shelter in Marlinspike after the windows of his car shatters. He has nothing to do with the plot, but keeps on popping up during the story to act as a foil to Captain Haddock. The story opens with Joylon Wagg, and closes with Joylon Wagg.
Then there is the Sticky Tab. The Sticky Tab has nothing to do with the story, and as the animated cartoon shows, it can be completely removed and we still have a consistent story, however to remove the Sticky Tab is to do a great injustice to this work (and the animated show pretty much does that). We also have the umbrella, which Snowy picks up and carries about with him through half the comic (until he loses it, and tries to take somebody elses). The glass shattering episodes at the beginning are thick and fast, and ends up turning Marlinspike into a comedy of errors and a media circus (as Herge so brilliantly draws in the beginning).
The Thompson Twins make a small appearance in this story as well, and while their entrance has been done similarly in Destination Moon, it is still a shock when they are brought in. We are told that 'two men have been arrested at the bomb site asking questions' and we know that the Bordurian agents were present, so we expect that it will be them. Turns out it is Thompson and Thomson in Swiss clothing, and their little antics in the hospital are to be expected of these two nitwits.
It is interesting that the only character in the Tintin comics that seems to have a family is Joylon Wagg, though there are a number of characters which we don't know much about their background. We know that the Thompson Twins are a couple of detectives and are silly, but we don't know much beyond that. In the same way we have little information on Tintin beyond him being a reporter, though we do know that he is young and unmarried. However, I am not entirely sure that Herge was intending anything with this because Tintin is purely an adventure story, and in the adventure story, we need not worry about such backgrounds. ( )
