tintin and captain


“Sir Francis, he was a figurehead of great courage and bold exploits. No one like him ever existed in my family. Why do you think I drink? Because I know I’ll never be like him.”

I have many fond memories of reading Tintin in my library. Out of all the superheroes in the industry, Tintin was the first one I saw growing up. What helps the books become so enjoyable that it does have a good sense of humor and its not all in jokes with current speak, its actual gags that would fit in that time period. The series has the right amount of camp and peril any child would dream of.
