Mr. Pump's LegacyBook - 1990
A less well-known but just as exciting and charming comic book adventure from the creator of Tintin.
In Mr Pump's Legacy the first aeroplane to be flown from Paris to New York at 1000 kilometres per hour will receive 10 million dollars. In an attempt to save the Stratoship H.22 from being stolen by gangsters, Jo and Zette take off with their pet monkey Jocko. But running short on fuel they soon find themselves having to land on a desert island.
The Adventures of Jo, Zette and Jocko was created by Herge in the same comic book style as his most iconic character, Tintin, whose place amongst the classic children's characters still helps to sell over 100,000 copies every year in the UK, with an estimated 230 million sold worldwide since Herge first put pen to paper on him. Two of The Adventures of Tintin were adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011.
