Tintin in Portugal

$(KGrHqZ,!hYFDvHereoMBRFv-10jCw~~60_57  In the 1950s and 60s The Adventures of Tintin were serialised in the Portuguese weekly Cavaleiro Andante.  This periodical ran from 1952 until 1962 and featured adventure-type comics from around the world (see more here).

It would however seem that brand control was not so tight at that time, as Tintin appears in quite atypical (but no less endearing) styles on the covers of the magazine, and even in a title-endorsed ad/competition for the Morris Minor automobile, as can be seen on these images of items recently offered on Ebay. Wouldn’t happen these days, methinks.
