The first adventure, Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, draws heavily on a contemporary account by Joseph Douillet, although the blunt artwork for the strip - originally conceived as no more than a weekly serial in a children's supplement - is, on this first appearance in 1929, much more basic.

 Tintin's Final Fling With Fate (washingtonpost.com)
In "Tintin and Alph Art," the series's 24th and last book -- and the first new volume since 1976 -- our hero uncovers a fraudulent art scheme and tracks the perpetrators to the island of Ischia off the coast of Italy, where they have stored counterfeit paintings in a grand hilltop chateau.
Tintin creator Georges Remi, known by the nom de plume Herge, died in 1983 before he could finish "Alph Art" and left instructions that no one else should write Tintin stories.
Also in Brussels, the historic Halles Saint-Gery is hosting an exhibit called "Tintin in the City." In French and Dutch, the exhibit studies Remi's drawings of cities and his references to Brussels in particular.
