Tintin in the World

Friday, June 15, 2007


Between 1929 and 1976, Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, AKA Hergé, penned the Tintin series. On the occasion of Hergé’s 100th birthday, cartoonist R. Sikoryak talks about why the books, hugely popular around the world, never gained a mass following in the U.S.

I am a huge Tintin fan; this link was sent to me by a former supervisor of mine. I especially love Captain Haddock's unusual insults; it shows that Remi was very educated and had an excellent vocabulary. By the way, I am a paid member of NPR and you may tell your listeners that I recieved and responded to this and love the comic strip.

I love Tintin and was so sad when I read the final book and had to have it explained to me that there weren't any more and never would be.
