Best Tintin Comic Books
Published on 27th Nov 2017
The Adventures of Tintin (French: Les Aventures de Tintin; [lez‿avɑ̃tyʁ də tɛ̃tɛ̃]) is a series of comic albums created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, who wrote under the pen name Hergé. The series was one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. By 2007, a century after Hergé's birth in 1907, Tintin had been published in more than 70 languages with sales of more than 200 million copies, and have been adapted for radio, television, theatre, and film. The series is set during a largely realistic 20th century. Its hero is Tintin, a courageous young Belgian reporter and adventurer. He is aided by his faithful dog Snowy (Milou in the original French edition). Other protagonists include the brash and cynical Captain Haddock and the intelligent but hearing-impaired Professor Calculus (French: Professeur Tournesol), as well as the incompetent detectives Thomson and Thompson (French: Dupont et Dupond) and the opera diva Bianca Castafiore. The series has been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Hergé's signature ligne claire ("clear line") style. Its well-researched plots straddle a variety of genres: swashbuckling adventures with elements of fantasy, mysteries, political thrillers, and science fiction. The stories feature slapstick humour, offset by dashes of sophisticated satire and political or cultural commentary. Here you'll find a list of all the books that are part of the Tintin Canon - rank them from best to worst and let everyone know why you think that's what the order should be!

The Best Agatha Christie Novels
Published on 8th Jul 2018
Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (born Miller; 15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976) was an English writer. She is known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, particularly those revolving around her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Christie also wrote the world's longest-running play, a murder mystery, The Mousetrap,[1] and six romances under the name Mary Westmacott. In 1971 she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her contribution to literature. Christie was born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon. Before marrying and starting a family in London, she had served in a Devon hospital during the First World War, tending to troops coming back from the trenches. She was initially an unsuccessful writer with six rejections,[3] but this changed when The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring Hercule Poirot, was published in 1920.[4] During the Second World War she worked as a pharmacy assistant at University College Hospital, London, during the Blitz and acquired a good knowledge of poisons which featured in many of her subsequent novels. Guinness World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books, behind only Shakespeare's works and the Bible. According to Index Translationum, she remains the most-translated individual author – having been translated into at least 103 languages. And Then There Were None is Christie's best-selling novel, with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time.

Rank the Best Feluda Stories
Published on 12th Jan 2018
There is perhaps no greater Bengali detective series than the famed writer and Oscar-winning director Satyajit Ray's Feluda (ফেলুদা) series. From his humble abode in 21 Rajani Sen Road, Ballygonj, Kolkata, Feluda or Prodosh Chandra Mitra, (প্রদোষ চন্দ্র মিত্র) becomes a celebrated private investigator over a series of 35+ novels and short stories, traveling all over India and beyond with his cousin and ever present "satellite" Topshe (Tapesh Ranjan Mitra) and his lighthearted but dependable friend Jatayu (Lalmohan Ganguly). Replete with drama, suspense, intriguing characters and Ray's unique brand of quaint humor, Feluda stories always hold a class of their own. Starting from Feludar Goendagiri in 1965, there have been 35 complete stories which include full-length novels and short stories and 2 unfinished stories, many of which have been turned into feature films for both the big screen and television. These have included such luminaries as Soumitra Chatterjee and Sabyasachi Chakrabarty and have been directed both by Satyajit Ray's son Sandip Ray and Satyajit Ray himself. Even after half a century of the publication of the first Feluda, the series still earns new fans every day.
