Tintin in the Land of the Soviets “For his first trip, what seemed the most important to me—at the time—was this country from which often terrifying and always extremely contradictory echoes were reaching us: Soviet Russia.” –Hergé
January 10th, 1929. Brussels. With his dog Snowy by his side, a young journalist gets on a train to Moscow. For Tintin, it's the beginning of a great adventure. For Hergé, the real beginning of his career.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
