In his debut adventure, originally published in 1929, Tintin is pursued by Bolshevik agents trying to prevent him from exposing the new Soviet regime. Punctuated by slapstick and political revelations, this story is based on the writings of an anticommunist Belgian ex-consul to the Ukraine. Herge’s early style revealed strong graphics, influenced by photo-reporting from the period, marking the historic debut of a major artist.
