“Never again did we see a character as ambiguous as Carreidas: a nice, but not so nice guy. And also villains who are in fact only losers.” –Hergé
Have extraterrestrials visited us? This is what Tintin, Haddock and Calculus investigate while traveling to Australia, when they are thrown unwillingly into an ambush plotted by Rastapopoulos. Mystery and the supernatural await.
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.
