The Adventures of Tintin

Tintin in the Land of the Soviets - Coloured version

Vol 1
Editions Moulinsart
24

First published in 1929, Tintin in the Land of the Soviets did not again become available to the general public until 1973. This first great Tintin adventure introduced the brave reporter and his dog, and set the stage for the rest of Hergé's career as a master comic strip author.

The colour in the new version of the story has the effect of increasing legibility, as it underscores the clarity of the drawings. The new version was created by Moulinsart with great attention to the restored original plates; the result is surprisingly modern, like a new adventure.

The official return of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets will happen the day after the reporter's 88th birthday and also during the centenary of the October Revolution.
