The Broken Ear (Original: L'Oreille cassée) is the sixth comic of Adventure of Tintin series. The comic published weekly from December 1935 to February 1937 at Le Vingtième Siècle for its children's supplement Le Petit Vingtième. The comic is colored in 1943. You will get colored edition here.

An Indian (South American) fetish is stolen from Museum of Ethnography in Brussels, Belgium.  Next day the fetish is returned with an apologies note that says the reason of the theft had been a bet. The note convinced the museum authorities but not Tintin. Over the course of his investigation, Tintin went to Los Dopicas, capital of San Theodoros. San Theodoros is a fictional country of South America ruled by General Tapioca. Another rebel general Alcazar was trying to overthrow Tapioca. Eventually Tintin was about to executed by firing squad but saved by general Alcazar and his men who were successfully overthrown Tapioca. With a bit of luck soon Tintin was ascending to the rank of Colonel and aide-de-camp of General Alcazar.

General Alcazar waged a war against General Magador the ruler of Nuevo-Rico. Tintin had to flee from Nuevo-Rico and found a British explorer, Ridgewell. Who told the secret of fetish and helped Tintin to rescue it.

We already know that Herge is obsessed of politics, at least in his early works. Gran Chapo War depicted in the comic was an allusion to the Gran Chaco War fought between Bolivia (San Theodoros) and Paraguay (Nuevo Rico) over oil rich Gran Chaco region from 1932-1935. Hergé's character Basil Bazarov, of the Korrupt Arms Company (Vicking Arms Company in the French edition), was a thinly veiled allusion to the real-life Greek weapons seller Basil Zaharoff of Vickers Armstrong, who profited from the conflict by supplying arms to both Paraguay and Bolivia.

In Herge early works, he did not use allusion. He directly abused Soviet Union, Stalin, Lenin in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets; Congolese in Tintin in the Congo; Al Capino in Tintin in America, Japanese in The Blue Lotus. So why Herge was not direct in this comic. I don’t know. Maybe consequence was not good in early comics or he may be afraid of a lawsuit of Vickers Armstrong.
