The Seven Crystal Balls is the thirteenth book in the series of Tintin adventures by Belgian writer and illustrator Hergé and was first published in the Le Soir newspaper from December 1943 to September 1944. The story was inspired by the expedition that discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun and the suggestion that they died in strange circumstances after invoking some sort of curse.
