I recently acquired the prequel to Tintin in America
published in Le Petit Vingtième
before the start of the actual adventure. As far as I can understand the French (and I am pretty poor at it) it has got 3 parts.
First there is an interview between Jamin, Tintin and Snowy to discuss Tintin's oncoming adventure.
An interesting thing that I found out from this is that Tintin actually knows Quick and Flupke and moreover, recommends them to Jamin in his absence.
Next there is a conversation between Tintin and Snowy in their apartment who discuss the criminals they evidently have to face in Chicago.
Then there is another bit where Tintin receives couriers from all around the world acknowledging his work and inviting him to their places. They receive some from America too and naturally, Tintin and Snowy's conversation shifts there.
Can anybody check whether I have got my information correct because, at present, I have no confidence in my French. Any further information is also welcome.
P.S. I know I am not allowed to give links to unofficial sites but can I at least mention the name of the site so that others can check them out too? As far I know this site has already been mentioned in the forums.Moderator Note:
No, you may not
mention the names of unofficial sources - it's not a game we are playing here, so looking for loopholes or how to get round the rules just isn't on: we are trying to keep the site open and free for all to use, and that is what the rules are there to protect.
Please re-read our Rules and Policies
if in any doubt. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.The Tintinologist Team
