Overview

The silhouette of Tintin - a young man wearing golf trousers, running with a white fox terrier by his side - is easily one of the most recognisable visual icons of the modern world. In fact Tintin is nine years older than Superman and ten years older than Batman, having first appeared in Belgium in 1929.

In this fully revised and expanded edition of this popular pocket-sized reference book the authors offer a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series.

Starting with the character's humble origins in the children's supplement of a Belgian catholic newspaper in the 1920s, the authors track Tintin's development and success throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years.

Each book is analyzed in detail, both in the context of the series, and in its larger framework: that of the comic's medium and of society in general. The authors also look at the massive industry that has developed round the figure of Tintin, the trivia, the anecdotes, the movies, and television series, and the multitude of Tintin spin-offs.

    To to treasure hunt

    Ah that is a answer you should know. For example What is Superman besides the man of steel? He is a super hero. But superman isn't the answer. Who got bitten by a radioactive spider. Spider man.

    Very interesting

    It was good, but it gives a few negative reviews, some of which concern racism. I am one of Tintin's biggest fans, and it upsets me to think badly of any Tintin book at all! Otherwise, good enough for Tintin fans all over!

    Great Find for Tintin Fans

    An easy to read and concise review, summary, and break-down of the Tintin comics by Herge. Great info and good insight with plenty of fun trivia and interesting facts on both the stories and the author. Each story is pulled apart and evaluted; ending with an "out of 5" rating. A must have for Tintin fans!
