INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY OF BRUSSEL

Tintin (pro nounced “tan-tan) is the greatest comic-strip hero of the French-speaking world. From Nice to Quebec City, he remains perpetually young to fans who play hardball at auc tions for Tintin memorabilia. His creator, Georges Remi (whose pen-name Herge is his initials pronounced backwards) sent him to the Kremlin, Shanghai, the Congo, outer space, and the wilderness of Chicago. Countless dissertations and novels have been written about Tintin’s possible androgyny; many also say that Indiana Jones was Tintin made into a man. When former French president Charles de Gaulle was asked whom he feared the most, he replied, Tintin is my only international competitor.
