    For those of you who don't know, Tintin is a comic book drawn by Herge, of Brussels, from the mid-30's to the early 70's. Each book takes place in an exotic world locale and centers on Tintin, a newspaper reporter, and his dog, Snowy, They are inevitably thrown into an intricate plot against all kinds of great villians. The book are famous for the amazingly detailed drawings and the witty dialogue and plots. The Tintin books are available in most big book store chains, well worth checking out.

    For those in the know, which character is your favorite? I'd be interested to see how many people know of Tintin....

    hard choice, between Pr Tournesol (already forgotten his english name :p) and Captain Haddock !
    finally chose Tournesol

    i can't believe americans don't know Tintin ... Belgian comics rulz ! (in my opinion, it's far better as american comics, and it's hard for a french to say something good about belgium :loco:)

    Tintin is far to be my favorite comic (i love Gaston Lagaffe), but it's all my childhood, i have read a million times all the comics, watched the cartoons almost as many times (even if i have i always found the cartoons very bad)

    Snowy!! That was a no-brainer. I remember watching this cartoon when I was younger. I never read the comic books. I guess I might check them out one day when I need something to read.

    What the hell does this have to do with Opeth? Tintin is gay, maybe you should move this to the swano forum. I'm sure they're all tintin readers over there.

    And for your information, Herge did make tintin a homosexual, so yes, tintin is gay.

    Awesome thread. I haven't read any of the comics in years though! I thought the Captain and Prof Calculus were the most interesting, but Bianca Castafiore was pretty annoying.
