Hi all,

For those of you who don't read the webcomic Girl Genius, (link) the current storyarc has a rather Tintin-esque feel to it, featuring a pair of arguing, color-changing gentlemen :).

If you decide that you want to read all the way through the archives, but don't have the time, check out Archive Binge (link)

Well, maybe, but their hair isn't growing ridiculously fast, and they aren't blowing bubbles.

Yes, but this way it is a tip-of-the-hat, an homage; what you suggest would just be copying wholesale. I think it’s perfectly possible that as the Captain says, the author of Girl Genius is making a sly little reference to Tintin.
