  The Black Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Black Island (L'Ile Noire) 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.
Stranded on the island, Tintin discovers that it is the hideout of the gang of forgers, led by Puschov and Muller.
When The Black Island was originally published in 1937, many aspects of the story reflected popular movies of the time, such as Alfred Hitchcock's The Thirty-Nine Steps (the pursuit to Scotland) and King Kong (Ranko the gorilla).

 Black Tom Explosion
The explosions occurred at Black Tom Island--no longer an island--but a mile-long pier on landfill that connected the island with the Jersey City waterfront (formerly old Communipaw).
Black Tom was only one of a number of homeland attacks in retaliation to the British naval blockade of Germany.
In the nearby harbor, the Statue of Liberty sustained $100,000 in damages from the spray of shrapnel, and newly-arrived immigrants at Ellis Island had to be evacuated for processing at the Immigration Bureau at the Battery in New York City.

 Amazon.com: The Black Island (The Adventures of Tintin): Books: Herge   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Black Island is an exciting and very funny tale of intrigue in which a gang of international forgers leads Tintin to the Scottish town of Kiltoch, where a dreaded beast is rumored to live.
The Black Island is also noteworthy in that it introduces the character of the villainous Doctor Muller, who appears again in two later stories, The Land of Black Gold (under the alias Professor Smith) and The Red Sea Sharks (there calling himself Mull Pasha, but playing a smaller role).
The Black Island occurs chronologically several tales before the entrance into the series of several of the most important characters (Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, Bianca Castafiore, etc.), so we encounter here a much smaller cast: Tintin, Snowy, and the Thompson twins are the only prominent characters.

Black Assarca is little more than a large coral head protruding some two meters from the sea.
The jagged, vertical sides of the island are stained fl by the sea, and hence its name.
That, however, has not prevented human habitation of the island in antiquity or in modern times when it has been host to an Italian gun battery, a lighthouse keeper, and most recently the INA archaeological crew.

 History of the Black Island
The Black Island was the first Tintin book I encountered, it being a Christmas present from my mother, and I was captivated by the pace, the plot and the amazing detail that went into the accompanying graphics.
As far as The Black Island goes, this is one of their funniest books - in either version.
Where the other books of the 60's were making fuller use of close-ups and angle variation, The Black Island is fairly faithful to the 1937 incarnation, not that this is noticeable.
