This is good, but Farr's other book on Tintin, Tintin: The Complete Companion is better.

The text in these character sketches often devolves into Farr simply describing the comic, which seems unnecessary. If one wants to know what happens in the comic, one can read them. Farr is at his best when he describes the inspirations behind the characters, particularly Chang, and the process by which Herge arrived at details of their character.

Recommends it for: fans of comics and anyone with an appreciation for excellence!
Never having experienced Tintin until the 1980's, this wonderful book by a "Leading British Tintinologist" is really cool! Seeing the history behind this boy adventurer is fascinating and an excellent read.
Recommended for all comic history devotees as well as those who enjoyed the Tintin movie (of which I am one).

Behind the scenes of the comics. All kinds of information on the people Herge got inspiration from for his characters. The most interesting one I learned about was his best friend, Chang. A Chinese, just like Tintin's best friend.
I'm a huge Tintin fan, so any books that provide in-depth character studies of Herge's greatest creation are always interesting to me. This provides a pretty good summary of the people in the Tintin stories.
Sejarah penciptaan Tintin dkk, karakter tokoh, dan sumber ide para karakter. Chang, sohibnya Tintin sendiri ternyata benar-benar ada, teman baik Herge yang bernama sama pula.
