Adventures of Tintin: Volume 1
Few European comics make it to the American market. Most graphic novels available are American, Japanese or British. This is a shame, because some of the best and most fascinating graphic storytelling comes from Europe. The Tintin stories were first published in the 1940s and have been continuously popular ever since. They follow the adventures of the reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy, as they travel across the world, solving mysteries. In this volume, they travel to America, Egypt, and China, uncovering conspiracies and righting wrongs as they do so. These stories are a product of their time, containing now outdated stereotypes and images, but their action is every bit as fresh as when they were first published – classic stories.
