Tintin In The Congo (A4 English)
An essential volume for collectors.
Tintin au Congo was first published in book form in French in 1931. This translation by Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner, the original Tintin translators, includes fascinating foreword describing the publication history of Tintin's African adventure, and placing it in it's historical context.
"In his portrayal of the Belgian Congo, the young Hergé reflects the colonial attitudes of the time... he depicted the African people according to the bourgeois, paternalist stereotypes of the period - an interpretation that some of today's readers may find offensive."
Tintin in the Congo Collector's Edition hardback in English. This colour edit completes the series of 24 Tintin adventures by Hergé.
