Read in January, 1977

I've been a Tintin reader -- and Hergé fan -- since I can remember; for many years, The Adventures of Tintin were the only comics I read. Hergé's artistic innovations are well-documented: beautiful "clear line" artwork and blueprint-perfect backgrounds; complex, carefully plotted stories; hilarious characters and deft comedic timing. What always excited me about the Tintin books was their globe-spanning reach, to locales as remote as the north Atlantic, the Middle East, South America, and, of course, the Moon. But my favorite volume in the series is undoubtedly Tintin in Tibet. In this story, Tintin, his faithful dog Snowy and loyal companion Captain Haddock search the remote mountains of Tibet for Tintin's good friend Chang. One of the few Tintin adventures that really provides insight into the main character's emotions, this story mixes incredible visuals and riveting suspense with a rare tug at the heartstrings. Truly an all-time comics classic.

Aarshi Ray Love it 2... Hergé has really done a gud job!

Umberto Said good one -- one great lesson that children can imbibe from this is the value of friendship.
