Tintin in Tibet (Tintin au Tibet)

Perhaps the most emotional volume in Herge’s Tintin series, Tintin in Tibet (1960) is certainly the one I’ve read the most times.

Perhaps there isn’t as much action as usual, but with its mystery woven around a heartfelt storyline that sees Tintin and Haddock searching the snowy mountains of Tibet for Tintin’s friend Chang, it’s a fantastic piece of storytelling that, despite the darker subject matter, is still graced with Herge’s usual fine sense of humour. 163 more words


Happy (Belated) Birthday to Sakunosuke Oda (Oda Sakunosuke)!

Technically his birthday was on the 26th of October, but I was very sick and not able to write something at the time.

Sakunosuke Oda is a very interesting author because despite having a short literary career, he managed to make a mark. 719 more words


A morning at Musée Hergé

Louvain-la-neuve is a small university town, and in another life maybe the kind of university town I would have loved to have lived in. Anyway, the purpose of my very brief visit there was for the Tintin Museum which is right around the centre of the town. 423 more words
