“For his first trip, what seemed the most important to me—at the time—was this country from which often terrifying and always extremely contradictory echoes were reaching us: Soviet Russia.” –Hergé
January 10th, 1929. Brussels. With his dog Snowy by his side, a young journalist gets on a train to Moscow. For Tintin, it's the beginning of a great adventure. For Hergé, the real beginning of his career.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
