With Herge's centennary upon us in 2007, we are now releasing these three previously unreleased titles. We believe they will be a big hit with avid Tintin fans who have been searching for these titles overseas to complete their collections.
In this adventure, the very first created by Herge, Tintin and Snowy find themselves in the Soviet Union. (Note: this particular title, one of three original unpublished in the U.S., may be considered somewhat controversial, as the story is a political satire and reflects Herge's distrust of the Soviet Union at the time it was written. This edition will be contextualized for the reader in an explanatory preface.)
Hergé, one of the most famous Belgians in the world, was a comics writer and artist. The internationally successful Adventures of Tintin are his most well-known and beloved works. They have been translated into 38 different languages and have inspired such legends as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He wrote and illustrated for The Adventures of Tintin until his death in 1983.
