Tintin’s lasting success cannot only be explained by the anecdotal content of his world-famous adventures. Far from being old-fashioned, the Tintin books are very modern, yet this modernity has hardly ever been acknowledged. In this study, which focuses on the well known book The Jewels of Bianca Castafiore, Benoît Peeters reveals all the hidden aspects of the Tintin series. He completes his reading with an in-depth, unpublished interview with Hergé.
