i don't know if i'm in the right place, or if this has been discussed elsewhere previously (apologies to the staff, i DID search the forums).
i've seen tintin and other characters pop up in other books a few times. the most blatent i know of, was in an iznogoud book ("iznogoud and the magic carpet") where captain haddock and snowy appear in a couple of frames. iznogoud actually uses some haddockesque curses when telling him to mind his own business.
another one is tintin himself appearing in a book "terry and the gunrunners" (a new zealand series of books, which i think is quite tintin inspired at times) as a pesky reporter who gets moved along by police. and i'm sure the thompsons pop up in an asterix story(?)
does anyone know of anymore? would this be frowned upon by the publishers of tintin?

Asterix in Belgium is the book with the Thompsons in it and Terry and the Last Moa also has Tintin in it. But why is he drawn with brown socks in it? I really enjoyed Terry and the Gunrunners, probably because it has the unmistakeable Tintin flavour to it. Unfortunately it is out of print and very rare. You wouldn't happen to know where I can get it would you?

Here is the list: Special cameos in Tintin books

The list is by no means complete, so everyone is welcome to add to it.

Do try and stay on topic, Christian. :) I have created a new topic for 'Terry and the Gunrunners series from New Zealand' in the 'Members Lounge' forum; and posts relating to where to find the series have all been moved there.

Not quite a character cameo, but the Belgian recruit in Asterix the Legionary reveals that he's got a Tintin quiff when he takes his helmet off. Again, not a cameo as such, but there was also that lovely tribute drawing by Albert Uderzo when Herge died, with a grateful Asterix shaking (a very nicely drawn) Tintin by the hand, and thanking him.
