Characters "breaking the fourth wall"?

Anyone noticed how sometimes characters break the fourth wall?
The most absurd of this is when at the end of Secret of the Unicorn when Tintin not only talks directly to the audience, but even announces his up-coming book (I assume in this moment, he's no longer a character, but now a narrator).
In Ottokar's Sceptre at the end, Tintin gives us a wink (although some claim it's not to anyone particular.)
I known Snowy has done it several times, and I'm sure I've missed a few others.

Kickers Tintin showing us readers to be quiet on the cover of The Castafiore Emerald is another example
