    Siberiak: My Cold War Adventure on the River Ob by Jenny Jaeckel (Artymedon)
    Artymedon: Both are graphic novels, both take place in the East, both are narrations of westerners confronted with a different culture as the storyline of Tintin was inspired by a book written on a travel to Russia by a journalist. Only difference the time period.

This reads like a collection of 2-page magazine comics that Hergé never meant to be stitched together, yet was into this book. They do follow a story arc, but lack any and all cohesion past that. Tintin's having tiny sub-adventures on a back-to-back basis, and I come out with a light headache, feeling like I've been just been beaten and badgered around like poor Tintin every 2 pages. ( )

Early Tin Tin, from the days when he seldom had a mouth, and Snowy had a rectangular face. This story is action all the way with the two characters escaping from one near death experience into another, over and over again, until they are finally welcomed home to Belgium as Heroes. Fun, quick read. ( )

I've read and enjoyed other installments of this series but this one, being the first, is definitely the slightest and most dated. Unfortunately there just isn't much to enjoy here anymore. ( )

The only book to contain a contribution by me on page 119. ( )

Holy anti-Bolshevism, Batman! This one doesn't beat around the bush...I can see why Herge never bothered to update it in the '40s. ( )
