    Interesting! Hence “Tintin and the Picaros”… the one where he meets a roguish gang of insurrectionists in South America.

    I was at What the Book?, the English language bookshop in Itaewon the other day, and I saw a Tintin omnibus including Tintin and the Picaros. I was slightly tempted to buy it – but only slightly. I probably read it when I was a child.
