Making its first appearance in 1930 in Le Petit Vingtieme in black and white. Later published in 1946 by Casterman, this time coloured and revised by Studio Hergé.
Tintin’s second adventure away from Bruxelles, shows us as Hergé said … “a story through the lens of the era, that is to say in a typically paternalistic spirit, which I can confirm was the general Belgian spirit at that time” from Hergé in his own words.
Never make this your first Tintin adventure, you would never return! Tintin and Snowy get up to really awful antics, no animal is safe!
Hergé felt this adventure was another youthful transgression.
Casterman is the publisher of this book.
