This week on Totally Tintin, Hergé goes back and starts again, and so do Ian and Dave as they examine the history of Land of Black Gold – exploding cars, exploding cigars and the brattiest brat that has ever been bratty in the history of comic strips.

If you’re curious, here is a link to the 1939 Le Petit Vingtième version and this link will take you to the original colour version from 1949. (Please be advised that both are in the original French!)
