General Description : Land of Black Gold (French: Tintin au pays de l'or noir) is the fifteenth volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. War is looming in Europe, fueled by concerns over oil supplies. Tintin sets off for the Middle East, where he hopes to unmask those responsible for the plot.

The story began to be serialized in black and white in Le Petit Vingtième, children's supplement to the conservative newspaper Le XXe Siècle, in 28 September 1939, shortly after the completion of the eighth volume King Ottokar's Sceptre. However, in May 1940, Nazi Germany invaded Belgium, closing down Le XXe Siècle, leaving Hergé unemployed and Land of Black Gold unfinished. After the war, Hergé restarted the serial in a new colour version in Tintin magazine from 16 September 1948 to 23 February 1950, publishing it in book form later that year. Over two decades later, in 1971, parts of the story were again redrawn to move the setting from the British Mandate for Palestine to the fictional state of Khemed.
