Tintin has remained as one of my favourite comic book characters. This adorable reporter's character was sketched out as early as 1929 !!! There were other brilliant side kicks as foul tempered Captain Haddock and forgetful Professor Calculus along with the delightful Snowy !!! Geting hold of all of tintin's adventures was a childhood goal i aimed to achieve. The books are a collector's treasure. Each window looks to have been drawn with terrific expertise and an eye for detail. Herge (real dude was George Remi under the pen name) was a master artist. My favourite book is "Prisoners of the Sun" and i still remember the picture where the llama splashes spit into Captain Haddock's face !!!
