Overview

In 1931, Herge wanted to create a tale of the oppression of Native Americans, but his boss preferred a story about the Chicago crime syndicate. The result, Tintin in America, is a compelling blend of adventure and social critique, with gangster Bobby Smiles fleeing to Redskincity, a town near an Indian camp. Its anti-American thrust made Tintin in America unpublishable without major edits in the U.S. Here it is presented in its original, uncensored black-and-white illustrated form.
