Tintin and the Picaros

So this is the last complete Tintin book. This time, the enigma returns to a familiar South American country to help a guerrilla leader overthrow the current government, using an alcoholism cure and a carnivale parade. I’m currently thinking that Tintin had CIA connections.

Tintin and the Picaros didn’t really work for me, for the reasons that Tintin in general doesn’t work for me. Who is the main character? Does he have parents? Where did he come from? Until those answers are given the whole thing seems unsatisfactory.

I like Captain Haddock, though.
