Tintin takes on Russians in new colour version of original epicParis, France- Tintin has discovered his inner Rambo and is ready to give Russian bully boys a taste of their own medicine in a book which will go on sale in France Wednesday. "Tintin and the Soviets" is finally being published in colour more than eight decades after the comic book first appeared, at a time when Europe was also fretting about a rising Russian menace. Unlike the rest of his adventures, the book that launched the boy hero in 1930 only ever appeared in black and white. Experts have long debated whether the rough and ready testosterone-fuelled character in the story was fully developed, and could be seen as Tintin proper. Although the artist did not collaborate actively, the show's curators insisted, he continued to draw a Tintin strip for a collaborationist Brussels newspaper.
