Shoshana, December 30, 2009 (view all comments by Shoshana)
I had never read a Tintin book before. I enjoyed the illustrations, including some clever incidental material. It was easy enough to figure out relationships and a certain amount of the characters' history, but I imagine that there would be slightly better flow if I had more familiarity with the series. However, even allowing for this, I thought the plot was rather disjointed. There is some racism that would not appear in a contemporary comic, though considering the era, the attitude is more sympathetic than I would imagine a U.S. comic to be.
