According to online sources; in the 20th century, George Herge, the Author of the Tintin comic book series (though a much loved, popular story), was also one of the most controversial comic book writers of his time. Herge held an overtly conservative ideology of life and so his writing tended to be influenced by this. the first issue of Tintin had a multitude of promotion and advocacy for anti-communism and conservative beliefs.
several of the Tintin comics, show awful stereotypes and dipictions of different races. though he disregarded all of these claims of his comics containing overt racism stating that it was “just a joke”, that it was not meant to be serious.
