ADV TINTIN HC VOL 02 THE BLUE LOTUS
Tintin travels to China in The Blue Lotus, a tale which is generally considered Herge's first masterpiece. It's also Tintin's only foray into actual history, specifically the Sino-Japanese conflicts of the early 1930s. The political tensions combined with the chilling threats of drugs give the story an especially high and realistic sense of danger. Herge paints a vivid picture of China and takes the opportunity to denounce ethnic prejudices.
