Tintin in the Congo

£39.99

Product description

Join the world's most famous travelling reporter in two exciting adventures as he heads for the Congo.
The young reporter Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy set off on assignment to Africa but a sinister stowaway follows their every move and seems set on ensuring they come to a sticky end. Tintin and Snowy encounter witch doctors, hostile tribesmen, crocodiles, boa constrictors and numerous other wild animals before solving the mystery and getting their story.

This copy is a collector's edition, brand new and shrink wrapped with a red strip wrapper. On the back of the red strip is a statement to make purchasers aware of the outdated attitudes which were prevalent, thankfully not universal, during the era of the book's original publication (1931): "In his portrayal of the Belgian Congo, the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, paternalistic stereotypes of the period - an interpretation that some of today's readers may find offensive." Quite.

This is, however, a new translation by the original translators, which includes an informative foreword.
