Tintin (Click on any image to load a larger copy)
Introduction
Tintin is the lead character in a series of comic books written by Hergé between 1929 and 1983. With his canine companion, Snowy, and friends, Tintin travels around the world (and moon) in a series of adventures.

The comics were created by Belgian, Georges Remi, who used the pseudonym of Hergé and originally published as a weekly comic strip in the Belgian newspaper Le Petit Vingtieme. The comics have been translated into 40 languages and have been read by over 120 million people.

In 2001, I went to Belgium (See Trip to Belgium) to see everything Tintin. This included seeing the Belgian Comic Strip Centre in Brussels, which has an exhibit on Hergé (including a 2m Moon Rocket and a 2m statue of Tintin. Also I went to the Stockel/Stokkel Metro Station, which has a mural containing nearly ever character in the Adventures of Tintin. Below are some pictures I took on my trip.
