The Crab with the Golden Claws
The Crab with the Golden Claws (originally Le Crabe aux Pinces d'Or) is a one of a series of classic comic-strip albums, written and illustrated by Belgian writer and illustrator Hergé, featuring young reporter Tintin as a hero.
The story begins with mysterious counterfeit coins and strange tins of crab-meat, and the story of a drunken man. A scrap of paper from a tin shows the ship Karaboudjan, which Tintin is locked away in by a gang of criminals who have hidden opium in crab-meat tins. Here he also meets Captain Haddock for the first time.
