Tintin in the Land of the Soviets

30 days left.

As we await the one-year anniversary of the Tintin movie premiere, I invite you to follow this blog as it posts small bits of trivia for the next 30 days. I hope that those of you new to the site or new to Tintin have not heard many of them before, and if you have, pat yourself for being so smart.

The first relates to Tintin in the Land of the Soviets. Tomorrow will be about Tintin in the Congo, and so on…

Tintin in the Land of the Soviets is the first Tintin album, and the only album that Hergé did not redraw into color. But it is also the only album in which Tintin appears without his hair up (it actually gets that way in the book and never changes back) and the only album in which Tintin is actually shown writing an article for his newspaper.
