For the true Tintin aficionado...
Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin Au Congo were the very first two Tintin books written in the early 1920's. However, because they are not up to the same quality standard as the rest of the series (Soviets was never redone like some of the others and is still in black & white) or are politically incorrect (i.e., Herge's racist portrayal of Africans and Tintin's hunting of elephants for their ivory), they have not been considered part of the Tintin "canon," and are rarely available. Tintin in the Congo has never been published both in color and in English in the United States (the version we carry is in French) although it is now available in Canada and the UK.
Tintin and Alph-Art was the very last book Herge was writing before he died in 1982. It is basically an incomplete sketchbook of the last Tintin adventure. These three are not included in this bundle but are available separately.
