A dark tale of vengeance and hostages on a background of guerilla, Tintin and the Picaros sees the return of Tintin in San Theodoros, the country of The Broken Ear. Herg? takes a sweet and sour stance with the intention to show that nothing in this world is anything but a big mascarade.

About the Author

Herge (Georges Remi) was born in Brussels in 1907. Over the course of 54 years he completed 23 albums of The Adventures of Tintin series, which is now considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, comics series of all time. With translations published in over 80 languages, more than 230 million copies sold worldwide and a Hollywood movie to its name, Tintin dominates the Comics and Graphic Novels chart even today. Sadly, Herge died in 1983, leaving his 24th album, Tintin and Alph-Art, unfinished, but his hero continues to be one of the most iconic characters in both adult and children's fiction.

One of the best Tintin books, very mature and different from early Tintin where a lot of slapstick humour was used. Most of the well-known characters are here, from Mme Castafiore, Prof Calculus through to Thomson and Thompson and Jolyon Wagg.
Fast-paced and full of detail, with some great twists and suspense. Highly recommended.

This was the last completed Tintin book, and there are some subtle changes made that make you wonder what Herge would have done in the next Tintin book had he lived to finish it (Haddock doesn't drink, Tintin dresses differently and practices yoga, and the last page of the book contains a depressing, though accurate, political message. Lots of supporting characters turn up (we're back in San Theodorus with Generals Alcazar and Tapioca after all) but everyone else seems to be there too. Lots of fun.
