"Tintin in America" has our hero coming to America, which is a land of Chicago gangsters and Native Americas. The art here is a bit more cartoonish than what comes later, but the most important difference is that this is basically Tintin and Snowy on their own with the wonderful cast of colorful supporting characters that end up populating the Tintin universe nowhere to be seen at this point. That may explain why Snowy "talks" a lot more in this early Tintin adventure than is his habit in later volumes. This is not a great Tintin adventure, but it is certainly an interesting one because of the way Herge presents America to his readers. Tintin arrives in Chicago to clean up the city ruled by gangster bosses and Al Capone is not happy to see the world famous reporter. Tintin survives so many attempted gangland hits that you lose count of them, and it is a toss up whether there are more last second escapes or scenes where Tintin pulls a gun on a gangster.Read more ›
- You get 3 stories for almost the same price as 1.
- The books are more portable and easier to handle for kids
- The hardcover also makes them more durable than the regular softcover ones.
The only negative is the smaller font and picture size, but if you can deal with that, these are great!

this was given as a gift to a young boy who is really getting into reading. Since my son cut his teeth on the Tintin stories, I thought this young man might like them too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Fred Smith
