Tintin in the Land of the Soviets...

The Adventures of Tintin is a series of 24 comic books created by Belgian comic writer and artist Georges Remi (1907–1983), better known as Hergé. They tell the stories of Tintin and his dog Snowy (Milou in French) who travel the world and beyond. Tintin is a reporter for a Belgian paper Le Petit Vingtième and his adventures take place against the backdrop of the eventful twentieth century. The first adventure, Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, was serialized in 1929. Commissioned by the conservative Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle as anti-communist satire for its children's supplement Le Petit Vingtième, it was serialised weekly from January 1929 to May 1930 before being published in a collected volume by Éditions du Petit Vingtième in 1930. The story tells of young Belgian reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy, who are sent to the Soviet Union to report on the policies of Joseph Stalin's Bolshevik government. Tintin's intent to expose the regime's secrets prompts agents from the Soviet secret police, the OGPU, to hunt him down.
