Overview

"Tintin, the most recognisable figure in all fiction, has been a publishing phenomenon since he first appeared in 1929." This book explains the books' sources in real life.

The fascist plots of the thirties, and later Stalinist machinations too, were transformed and inimitably satirised in the tension between Syldavia and Borduria.
