Hi,
Has anyone got any information on two Tintin parodies- TINTIN IN SWITZERLAND and TINTIN MEETS BATMAN.

Don’t know about “Switzerland”, but “Batman” is quite funny, if very odd, if I remember correctly. Long time since I saw it.

It is done in an early style, and is made to look like one of the B&W editions. Tintin visits Gotham City, and becomes involved in chasing gangsters, bringing him to the attention of Batman. Batman banishes Tintin from America, but accidentally runs over Snowy as he departs in the Batmobile.

In Part 2, Tintin is overcome with emotion at the death, and seeks revenge, returns to Gotham and shoots Batman.

It is sort of mickey-taking of the “grim and gritty” re-invention school of 80s and 90s comics, which is evidenced by the way Batman is drawn changing from the original Bob Kane style to a version of the movie Bats by the end.

From memory, "Tintin in Switzerland" is an x-rated piece by Hergi. For a sample page and more detailed information (in French), please refer to

A review of "Tintin and Batman in the Clown Prince" can be found at

"Tintin and Batman in the Clown Prince" is a hoax, I think - a cover and the review, and nothing else. The Tintin est Vivant site has a bit about it here.

The one I described was “Tintin Contre Batman”, which does exist, and I notice that it too is by Hergi.
