Excerpt: Tintin in the Congo (in the original French, Tintin au Congo) is the second title in the comic book series The Adventures of Tintin, written and drawn by Belgian cartoonist Herge. Originally serialised in the Belgian children's newspaper supplement, Le Petit Vingtieme between June 1930 and July 1931, it was first published in book form later that year. Herge would later redraw and colour the work for a new edition in 1946, and then made alterations to one of the pages for republication in 1975.

The plot revolves around the young Belgian reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy, who travel to the Belgian Congo to report on the situation of the country there. Once in the central African nation, the duo get into various adventures, encountering wild animals, angry natives, and American diamond smugglers under the employ of famous mobster Al Capone.

"Author of the critically acclaimed Tintin and the World of Hergé and the last person to interview Remi, Benoit Peeters tells the complete story behind Hergé's origins and shows how and why the nom de plume grew into a larger-than-Remi personality as Tintin's popularity exploded. Drawing on interviews and using recently uncovered primary sources for the first time, Peeters reveals Remi as a neurotic man who sought to escape the troubles of his past by allowing Hergé's identity to subsume his own. As Tintin adventured, Hergé lived out a romanticized version of life for Remi."--Jacket.
