Hergé's favourite Tintin panels

From The Crab with the Golden Claws (1941): 'An entire sequence in one'

From Red Rackham's Treasure* (1944): 'It has it all'

As mentioned by Hergé in Tintin and I, the documentary based on transcripts of interviews between Hergé and Numa Sadoul in 1975. Though both look like rather average Tintin images, they express Hergé's desire to tell a story as economically as possible.

Read Nicholas Lezard's opinion of the new Tintin film, How could they do this to Tintin? in the Guardian. It seems to tally with my own thoughts about it.

*Er, though Hergé seems to have forgotten about colouring in the lower part of Haddock's blue jersey!
