    1. This is a pretty good primer on all you need to know about Tintin. It breaks down each story, how it fits into the series, the major characters, the point at Herge's life in which it was drawn (and answers certain chronological mysteries, like how in Cigars of the Pharaoh, Tintin is shown a copy of his own moon adventure Destination Moon, even though it happened 20 years later), plus political and social details, personal events in Herge's life, early takes and sketches for each book, actual mod [...]


    2. As far as books on Tintin go, this is the one to get. I don't know if there have been any revised editions since I got this way back in 1993, but even my own edition seems hard to surpass as there's a cornucopia of information present here. The book looks fantastic as well - lots of high-quality pictures and neatly layn out.Ina ddition to this book I recommend you watch the documentary "Tintin and I" by Numa Sadoul in order to get a better picture of the troubled comic book writer himself.


    3. This is laid out as if an Anthropologist cum Journalist like Tintin himself had put it together. Each chapter focuses on one book in the series and includes images of actual artifacts, newspaper clippings, historical information of the time and behind-the-scenes information. SO GOOD! For the true Tintin Nerd!


    4. I have loved the Tintin books since I was a kid. This book give a lovely glimpse of the work and life of Herge. A beautiful book all round - especially for Tintin fans. More of a coffee table book - leaves you wanting more.


    5. Less detailed in biographical content than the Harry Thompson book, but with pictures and therefore better as a synopsis of a graphical art series. Well recommended for an introduction to the series and to the life of the author


    6. Very good -- a combo of a brief biography of Herge, and an analysis of each Tintin story. Longer review here: eyesandearsblog/2
