The Adventures of TinTin King Ottokars Sceptre

Herge (Georges Remi

First published in French in 1939, and written at the time that Europe was under the thumb of totalitarianism: Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin.

Tintin is taken through a sequence of strange vents to the mythical Kingdom of Syldavia, which we learn much about in this book. The drawings and information which bring this country to life : a combination between Zenda and Albania , are amazing . A plot by Fascists based in neighboring Borduria is hatched to unseat King Muskar, involving the seizure of the symbol of the Syldavian monarchy, the mediaeval King Ottokar's Scepter. Tintin is called to the rescue. Once more these charming comics are an interesting commentary on events at the time, through the eyes of Herge.

A reprint of this classic comic for a new generation

Herge (pseudonym of Georges Remi), Belgian author and illustrator, created Tintin and produced 24 volumes of the internationally famous bande dessine by the time of his death. Known as the father of the modern European comic book, Herge's impeccable style and superb use of color won him international acclaim after the Second World War.
