Atom Vercorian, private eye and dedicated detective, decides to stand in for his father, the police chief, leading the
investigation into the disappearance of Begum Aga Khan’s jewelry. In August 1949, the wealthiest couple in the world were the victims of a robbery as speedy as it was spectacular, the value of the stolen goods amounting to over 200 million francs. This true story inspired Hergé to coin the famous exclamation by his Tintin character, Bianca Castafiore ‐ “Heavens! My Jewels!”
Between vintage elegance and graphic modernism, these wonderfully retro self‐contained adventure stories toy with the genre’s codes and flirt with the classics.
