Review by Shirezu
After Tintin's travels in the Middle East and India he continues his investigation into the the mysterious drug-running organisation with the trial running into China. Set just prior to the Japanese invasion of Manchuria for the first time Hergé drops his European views and actually shows sympathy for the oppressed. Tintin teams up with the local Chinese to try and defeat the opium druglords and Japanese oppressors. He also dispels myths commonly held by Western society of the time which vilified the Chinese. <br/><br/>That's not to say this book is stereotype free. Most of the Japanese are stereotypically depicted with glasses and buck teeth but at least this time the villains actually were the villains. Onwards and upwards with more Tintin.
