Tintin in the land of Soviets

Herge’s  First Book of the Tintin Comics is the Land of Soviets. Being Published in 1930, The Author, Herge was an Belgian Cartoonist; hence he decided Brussels as Tintin’s Home Town.

In his debut adventure, Tintin is pursued by Bolshevik agents trying to prevent him from exposing the new Soviet regime. Punctuated by slapstick and political revelations, this story is based on the writings of an anticommunist Belgian ex-consul to the Ukraine. Herge’s early style revealed strong graphics, influenced by photo-reporting from the period, marking the historic debut of a major artist.
