These stories were not issued in their “canonical” order. Numbering has been created from dates of issue. When several titles were issued on the same date, they were numbered according to canonical order within that batch. This series should not be confused with a later hardbound series from the same publisher, also called The Adventures of Tintin. Books were originally issued between 1974 and 2007, and many have been in print ever since, so there are minor variants in circulation. Early numbers originally appeared without barcodes or ISBNs, while all issues now have both. Other points of variance include: prices; brands; indicia; content of barcodes and ISBNs; front matter; and back-cover promos.

The Adventures of Tintin (French: Les Aventures de Tintin is a series of 24 comic albums created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, who wrote under the pen name Hergé. The series was one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century. By 2007, a century after Hergé’s birth in 1907,[1] Tintin had been published in more than 70 languages with sales of more than 200 million copies,[2] and had been adapted for radio, television, theatre, and film.

The series first appeared in French on 10 January 1929 in Le Petit Vingtième (The Little Twentieth), a youth supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle (The Twentieth Century). The success of the series saw the serialised strips published in Belgium’s leading newspaper Le Soir (The Evening) and spun into a successful Tintin magazine. In 1950, Hergé created Studios Hergé, which produced the canonical versions of ten Tintin albums.

  1. Hi Boutje
    These are all the books needed to complete your Tintin files. I have included the companion as well although it was published in 2001 but it is a factual book giving background to the series.
    I have also included “PEPPY IN THE WILD WEST” as it is by the creator of Tintin.
    All the best


    1. Thanks, another one for the update, i am not sure that i used only publications from before 2000, sometimes it’s hard to tell what year the publication is from, i believe most of them are American editions from the 70s and 80s, so a few more from the 2000’s won’t make the difference.
