Story and art by Herge.
"Cigars of the Pharaoh" is one of Tintin's earliest adventures. He and Snowy are on a cruise to Egypt when they happen to meet Professor Sophocles Sarcophagus (the first of Tintin's absent-minded professors) and join his expedition. But they become embroiled in a complicated scheme involving a fakir, cigars marked with an unusual brand, and Rajijah, the poison of madness. This story was written in 1932, but in the '50s was shortened and rewritten for this edition.
