I got this comic as part of an "Every Star Trek Comic Ever" Digital Bundle, which means I didn't appreciate it when the writer used his "Personal Log" in this issue to insult the previous Star Trek series (presumably the Gold Key one). Thanks Mike W. Barr, I was going to read that! Now I know it's not good!

Reading this comic is the road to Socialism 8

As a long time American fan of Tintin, there have always been certain stories that were difficult to find. One of these was "Tintin in the Congo" but none were as difficult to find as Tintin's first adventure, the incomparable "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets." I say incomparable, because no other Tintin story can compare to how awful it is. Supposedly, Hergé would later say that he didn't consider this comic "real work" and that it was "just a game."
