Tintin : Revisted after a long time

tintinAfter a long time, due to recent turn of events I suddenly found myself with a lot of time to spare, and what better way to splurge time that reading. It was late at night (around 3.30 AM) and I had this sudden urge to read something entertaining, in the detective genre hat would not take too much time nor effort to ingest. And that is when I remembered that I was missing Tintin and his adventures.

For the uninitiated, here is what Wikipedia has to say about Tintin:

Tintin (French pronunciation: [tɛ̃tɛ̃]) is the fictional hero of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. He is a reporter and adventurer who travels around the world with his dog Snowy. The character was created in 1929 and introduced in Le Petit Vingtième, a weekly youth supplement to the Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle. He appears as a young man, around 14 to 19 years old with a round face and quiff hairstyle. Tintin has a sharp intellect, can defend himself, and is honest, decent, compassionate, and kind. Through his investigative reporting, quick-thinking, and all-around good nature, Tintin is always able to solve the mystery and complete the adventure.

Thanks to Blackkat.Net that has indexed the adventure of this Belgian reporter’s adventures on the internet for everyone’s access my ungodly urge was sated finally.

This particular adventure The Adventures of Tintin – In the Lands of the Soviets wasthe boy’s first adventure and was published in 1929 in a children’s supplement to a Belgian newspaper

Are you a fan of Tintin’s adventures? Or is this the first time you’re hearing about this boy reporter? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

    Love Tintin! Did you know that in French the pronunciation is ‘Tan tan’ ? With the n silent and nasal. He’s Belgian, or his creator was 🙂


  2. A brilliant complete collection of the Adventures of Tintin was recently published by Penguin. Brings back old memories.
