The author analyzes each one of Tintin’s adventures following the temporal order in which the different works appeared and creating, at the same time, a parallelism with some of most transcendental events of the twentieth century. There is an evident correspondence between reality and what Hergé included in his drawings, a correspondence which becomes significant both because of the plot, characters, and elements used and because of the absence of explicit references to certain subjects, an absence which may have been deliberate on the part of the artist. This essay allows us to better understand our history through the mind of the celebrated Belgian youth.
