The silhouette of Tintin is one of the most recognisable visual icons of the modern world, having first appeared in Belgium in 1929. In this fully revised and expanded edition of this popular pocket-sized reference book the authors offer a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series. Starting with the character’s humble origins in the children’s supplement of a Belgian newspaper in the 1920s, the authors track Tintin’s development throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years. Each book is analysed in detail. pp. 160 #0120
