Sample text

Intrigued by the incident, Tintin goes off to Shangai and thus the adventure begins which will take him into opium dens, see him arrested for espionage and sentenced to death and get involved with the Chinese resistance movement to the invasion and occupation of Manchuria by the Japanese army. : Oh yes. This is the first great Tintin book. Hergé put much more thought and care into his research and was aided by a Chinese student named Chang from the Académie de Bruxelles. Tintin goes adult here with a sometimes dark storyline and fantastic art - especially a panel of a street scene with Chinese murals and flags.

Tintin joins the expedition - despite knowledge that all who attempted this quest have vanished. As usual, villains are afoot and ready to stop Tintin at all costs... : Yes. This is more frenetic than the previous books save for Tintin in the Land of the Soviets but the art is much better than that first volume. We meet the bumbling Scotland Yard detectives Thompson and Thomson for the first time and Senhor Oliviera de Figueira, the thrifty Portuguese trader who can sell snow to Eskimos. As if that wasn't enough, Tintin also meets his most famous foe Rastapopoulos for the first time.

He compiled the book from Moscow Unveiled by Joseph Douillet and later regretted the simplistic and melodramatic nature of his subtext. The Soviet Union was hardly perfect but even so a more subtle and layered approach was needed and this was apparently beyond the young and heavily influenced artist/writer at the time. Hergé never considered Tintin in the Land of the Soviets to be a true part of his series and soon seemed to regret its existence. It is widely believed that he was most concerned about his standing amongst left leaning contemporaries who had a more romantic notion of Communism and Russia.
