The world’s most famous travelling reporter heads for Russia. Accompanied by his dog Snowy, Tintin leaves Brussels to go undercover in Soviet Russia. His attempts to research his story are put to the test by the Bolsheviks and Moscow’s secret police . . . Join the most iconic character in comics as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure spanning historical and political events, and thrilling mysteries. Still selling over 100,000 copies every year in the UK and having been adapted for the silver screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in 2011. The Adventures of Tintin continue to charm more than 80 years after they first found their way into publication. Since then an estimated 230 million copies have been sold, proving that comic books have the same power to entertain children and adults in the 21st century as they did in the early 20th. Tintin in the Land of the Soviets remains the only adventure not to have had its artwork coloured.

Tintin noir sur blanc décrit dans le détail la genèse et les caractéristiques des neuf premiers albums de Tintin, publiés en noir et blanc avant la fin de la dernière guerre mondiale. L'ouvrage s'adresse tant aux tintinologues, curieux de découvrir les modalités de publication des premières aventures, qu'aux collectionneurs pointus. C'est à l'intention de ces derniers que Marcel Wilmet a ajouté, sous forme de fiches techniques, une description détaillée des différentes éditions et variantes "officielles". Il offre ainsi aux collectionneurs de ces albums mythiques et souvent introuvables, une source documentaire très attendue. Elle a été constituée grâce aux connaissances nées de la passion personnelle de l'auteur pour les albums de Tintin, tout particulièrement les "noir et blanc". Connaissances enrichies par la consultation de nombreuses collections prestigieuses et par la lecture approfondie des abondants courriers échangés entre Hergé et son éditeur Casterman.

VOLUME 1 IN THE UNFORGETTABLE STORY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY CHILDHOOD A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR 2015/2016 | AN OBSERVER GRAPHIC BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016 | A NEW YORK TIMES CRITICS' TOP BOOKS OF 2016 'EXUBERANTLY HERETICAL' 'I tore through it... The most enjoyable graphic novel I've read in a while' Zadie Smith 'I joyously recommend this book to you' Mark Haddon 'Riad Sattouf is one of the great creators of our time' Alain De Botton 'Beautifully-written and drawn, witty, sad, fascinating... Brilliant' Simon Sebag Montefiore The Arab of the Future tells the unforgettable story of Riad Sattouf's childhood, spent in the shadows of three dictators - Muammar Gaddafi, Hafez al-Assad, and his father. In striking, virtuoso graphic style that captures both the immediacy of childhood and the fervor of political idealism, Riad Sattouf recounts his nomadic childhood growing up in rural France, Gaddafi's Libya, and Assad's Syria - but always under the roof of his father, a Syrian Pan-Arabist who drags his family along in his pursuit of grandiose dreams for the Arab nation. Riad, delicate and wide-eyed, follows in the trail of his mismatched parents: his mother, a bookish French student, is as modest as his father is flamboyant. Venturing first to the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab State and then joining the family tribe in Homs, Syria, they hold fast to the vision of the paradise that always lies just around the corner. And hold they do, though food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and with locks banned, the Sattoufs come home one day to discover another family occupying their apartment. The ultimate outsider, Riad, with his flowing blond hair, is called the ultimate insult... Jewish. And in no time at all, his father has come up with yet another grand plan, moving from building a new people to building his own great palace. Brimming with life and dark humour, The Arab of the Future reveals the truth and texture of one eccentric family in an absurd Middle East, and also introduces a master cartoonist in a work destined to stand alongside Maus and Persepolis.

A l'initiative de Dominique Bussereau, député de Charente-Maritime, président du Club des Parlementaires tintinophiles, un débat historique, animé par Thomas Sertillanges, s'est récemment déroulé à l'Assemblée nationale sur une question que se posent tous les jeunes de 7 à 77 ans Tintin est-il de droite ou de gauche? Quatre éminents parlementaires : Jean-Marie Bockel, député du Haut-Rhin Yann Galut, député du Cher Didier Quentin, député de Charente-Maritime André Santini, député des Hauts-de-Seine qui souhaitaient ainsi honorer les 70 ans du reporter du Petit Vingtième ont débattu avec humour et talent autour de ce thème volontairement provocateur, mais tellement rafraîchissant, démontrant ainsi qu'ils savaient aussi manifester un certain recul vis-à-vis du conformisme et de la pensée unique comportementale. Ce compte-rendu analytique des débats, comme l'on dit à l'Assemblée Nationale, est ici complété par les contributions d'Hélène Carrère d'Encausse, d'Alain Peyrefitte, de Pierre Daix et d'Alain Duhamel.
