Tintin: A Comic Cast Special

November 3, 2011

This week on the Comic Cast we dedicate an entire show to Hergé’s Tintin. Illustrator BRENB joins us as a guest reviewer of Steven Spielberg’s film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, we visit the official Irish home of Tintin – International Books in Dublin, where proprietor Brendan Storey tells us how the boy reporter saved his business and we review The Art of the Adventures of Tintin by Chris Guise. What else can we say but “Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles in a thundering typhoon!” Enjoy.
