“I could have depicted monstrous animals, incredible creatures, men with two heads … I was overcautious (about sticking to reality): no Moon men, no monsters, no wondrous tales!” –Hergé
The crew’s space adventure generates a lot of envy—to the point where traitors board the rocket alongside Tintin, Calculus, Haddock and a few others. How will they uncover the saboteurs? Will they return to Earth safe and sound?
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.
