In this pocket-sized reference book, the authors offer a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series, perhaps (arguably) the first in the English language. It starts with the character's humble origins (so to speak) in the children's supplement of a Belgian Catholic newspaper in the 1920s, and tracks its development and success throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years. Each book is analysed in detail, both in the context of the series, and in its larger framework: that of the comics medium and of society in general. There is also plenty of trivia and anecdotal stories, as well as coverage of the Tintin movies, television shows and other ancillary spin-offs.
