BREAKING FREE: Tintin The Revolutionary

January 12th, 2011 | comics talk

A guy called Frank Lynn asked me on Twitter if I’d ever seen this.

Seen it? I used to own a copy of this short-run black-and-white comic, back in the Eighties. Lost it years ago, of course. Thanks, Frank. Am amazed that the internet can still do its thing and bring back even the fringiest of cultural artifacts.

In this instance, a detourned leftie Tintin and friends in dead-end Thatcher Britain fomenting a working-class uprising.
