“I sent one of my associates to England. He drew sketches, took pictures, collected documents … The island … couldn't be more English.” –Hergé
Chasing down counterfeiters in Europe, Tintin discovers that the key hub of their operations is located on a doomed island off the Scottish coast. There, he fights Doctor Müller, whose only goal in life seems to be getting rid of Tintin.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
