As any event, whatever it may be, bears the mark of the period and of the society when and where it was conceived, I believed it would be of interest to situate, in its ideological context, Herge’s comic, Tintin au Congo, often criticised by readers in spite of its enthusiastic reception. After having briefly recalled Tintin’s adventures in the Congo, I then explain the circumstances of the creation of this album and the ideological climate which determined the contents. I go on to recall how the Belgian Catholic middleclass actually imagined Africa to be. In my final point, I try to indicate the reasons for the success of Herge’s work.
