Customer Review

on December 3, 2006
Tintin and his dog Snowy are off to report on what life is like in Russia, but there are many who do not want him to report anything, and are out to stop him through trickery and sabotage. Will he be able make it there and back?

"Tintin in the Land of the Soviets" was the first Tintin comic Herge wrote back in 1929, when he was 22 years old. The pictures haven't been redone or coloured, so the style is exactly how it was published in the 1920s, and it's interesting to see what Tintin used to look like, particularly in the very first frames he appears in. This adventure has been pretty hard to find, and it's nice to now have it in English.

It's a pretty fun adventure I thought, and though it's an early one, there's a lot of elements that make up Tintin adventures already in place (a scene where Snowy accidentally gets drunk, an incident with chloroform, a car chase or two, etc). Snowy's character is pretty much as it is in the later stories too, his look and the sort of comments he likes to make.

It's worth a look for Tintin fans, I think.
