The Adventures of Tintin

™ and © Mammoth

Herge’s Tin Tin is a character that is possibly more popular now than when the stories were originally created from the 1920s-1970s. He is the inspiration for the more adventurous stories of Richie Rich by longtime Richie Rich artist and writer Ernie Colon’s own admission. Tin Tin is a boy/teen that globe trots in the guise of a newspaper reporter and ends up solving international crime along with a cast of characters that includes Snowy (Tin Tin’s dog), Captain Haddock, Thompson and Thompson (twin detectives that inspired the name for the popular 80s group Thompson Twins) and Professor Calculus. 21 tales have been reprinted countless times in different formats.

Beyond the highly recommended 21, hardcore fans are advised to seek out Tin Tin in the Land of the Soviets and Tin Tin in the Congo as well as the film books Tin Tin and the Golden Fleece and Tin Tin and the Blue Oranges, and the aborted Tin Tin and Alpha Art, a tale left in progress by Herge and published posthumously.
