Who else loved this comic as much as me?



There was tintin, snowy, captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and the twins Thomson & Thompson.

I had about 7 of the books.

My favourite was Probably Flight 714 or Land of the Black Gold.

My Least favourite was The Seven Crystal Balls.
It gave me nightmares.


Share.

Great example for us impressionable kiddies.

Yeah I had to read them in French as well, and I remember Asterix in French was so much funnier than English.

Did Tin Tin not get criticised for Racist content. Anti Jewish or something?

Tin Tin is cool! I have 4 books (Calculus Affair, King Ottokar's Scepter, Red Rackham's Treasure, and Secret of the Unicorn). In grade school, the school library had all of them, so it kind of became a contest to see who could read all of them first. My favorite was the Picaros, or maybe Tin Tin in America.

They sell them at a comic store near me, and since I have a gift card there, I might go buy some.

I think one of the books/comics was banned because it depicted black people as ape-like or primitive, or something like that.

Quote by wikipedia
Tintin is an extremely intelligent and imaginative character with good powers of deduction. He also seems to know multiple foreign languages and reads extensively on a variety of subjects. He is also skilled at driving automobiles, motorcycles, tanks, riding horses and flying planes or helicopters. Despite his generally weak appearance, Tintin is athletic and possesses great physical strength, being able to knock out enemies much larger than him in combat. He was even once victorious in a weaponless fight with a large Brown bear in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets. Additionally, he is an excellent swimmer, has been shown to do yoga, and can survive falls that would normally cause serious injuries.

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have just found the new Chuck Norris.

Meh it's a pretty old comic, I imagine there is a lot of out-dated racial views in there what with political correctness as it is today.


Oh and also EVERY black person in the comic is drawn as pitch black with MASSIVE red lips. Thats probably part of it too.
