The news that Tintin in America is to be the next black-and-white book to receive a colour makeover has been followed by the announcement of a new companion volume, giving an in-depth look behind the creation of the story, and insights into Hergé's relationship with the country of America, through selections from unseen correspondence written in relation to his two major visits there.

From the pen of noted Tintinologist and expert on the life and work of Hergé, Philippe Goddin, it follows similar volumes on the creation of the first two stories, Hergé, Tintin et les Soviets and Les Tribulations de Tintin au Congo.

It will be available digitally in French and English from 30/10/2020, and in French as a hard-back book (ISBN 978 2 87424 482 7) as of 01/09/2020.

Hi. I got both the new monograph & colourised version of Tintin in America for Xmas. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the monograph & appreciated seeing the different Dutch version (in English) in it.
I note that the previous monographs (soviet & Congo) were only available in French (&Dutch?). Do you think if the American version is popular they may consider releasing in English. Hardback would be my preference, although I would settle for a digital version.

Looking forward I hope that these continue perhaps in parallel with colorisation of the B&W editions. In particular I am keen to see those that were not previously translated into English be covered especially black Island & The Crab With The Golden Claws. With the latter it would be good to see the monograph include the Jeunesse version translated into English. Fingers crossed 🤞
