Tintin is ... for once wearing a blue shirt,

Just leafing through some pictures, and I came to the sudden realization that a huge (perhaps the world's biggest?) example of Tintin also features a blue shirt!

The famous sign of Tintin and Snowy on the roof of the Lombard building, which greets so many visitors to the Belgian capital, when they arrive in Brussels at the Gâre du Midi next door, depicts the boy reporter with a blue collar; I think I'd probably been misreading the flash of blue as his famous jumper, but no, it's the collar of a shirt (his jumper is not depicted.

Just goes to show what you don't see when you look at something...!

I also think as someone pointed out undertaking making a book of this magnitude is hard so continuity errors are going to happen.

There is a very small, very minor mistake which I noticed: on page 34, third frame on the top, Ridgewell's headband is not coloured in. In the other frames it is blue, but in that frame it is white.

Like glashab's earlier example, that too is a printing error: my Casterman original French copy, and my Methuen edition, have the head-band correctly coloured; my later Egmont one has it white.

But a good spot - you're obviously reading the books closely! :-)
