The Adventures of Tintin

The Adventures of Tintin was the Wikipedia Featured Article on January 5th. Dont miss reading that article. Its well researched and provides many interesting details to fans Tintin all over the world. Few things which I liked and noted:

The comic strip series has long been admired for its clean, expressive drawings in Hergé's signature ligne claire style.


On June 1, 2006, the Dalai Lama bestowed the International Campaign for Tibet's Light of Truth award upon the character of Tintin, along with South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu.The award was in recognition of Hergé's book Tintin in Tibet, which the Executive Director of ICT Europe Tsering Jampa noted was "(f)or many ... their introduction to the awe-inspiring landscape and culture of Tibet".Accepting on behalf of the Hergé Foundation, Hergé's widow Fanny Rodwell declared: "We never thought that this story of friendship would have a resonance more than 40 years later".


Charles de Gaulle once said "My only international rival is Tintin."
