Red Rackham's Treasure

Summary
Red Rackham's Treasure (Le Trésor de Rackham le Rouge) is the twelfth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. The story was serialised daily in Le Soir, Belgium's leading francophone newspaper, from February to September 1943 amidst the German occupation of Belgium during World War II.

Red Rackham's Treasure was a commercial success and was published in book form by Casterman the year following its conclusion.

Red Rackham's Treasure has been cited as one of the most important installments in the series for marking the first appearance of eccentric scientist Cuthbert Cal
