“At this time, the Chaco War was taking place between Bolivia and Paraguay over ownership of oilfields.” –Hergé
Who is after the Arumbaya idol exhibited at the ethnology museum? To discover the answer, Tintin travels to Central America, where he meets General Alcazar. Attacks, revolutions, rainforests—Tintin is about to see it all.
Tintin, perhaps one of the most famous cartoon heroes of all time, is as much a child of the 20th century as his creator, Georges Remi—aka Hergé (1907-1983). Tintin's adventures, marked by his inquisitiveness, sense of mystery and witty humour, are deeply rooted in the events of that tumultuous era.
