Fellow Tintinologists,
I am an avid fan of Tintin. I have all the books, the T.V. series on DVD and a few collectible items.

However, I have read the Tintin comics so many times, I am looking for something new to read. (Don't worry, I'll still read my Tintin!) I've heard good things about Hergé's other work, but never actually read any of them. So, can anyone give any suggestions on what other works they enjoyed the most?
If anyone knows where I could get copies of the books/shows they suggest, it'd be appreciated.

The Jo and Zette books are pretty good.
You can get a few of them at Tintin shops or on Amazon.com. They are my second favorite work by Herge.

Also try Quicke and Flupke.
They are much rarer than Jo and Zette (I'm not even sure if they publish them in English anymore.)
They have less of a plot than Tintin or Jo and Zette, but they are still funny.

Good luck Jordy,
Gabe.

I agree with that. I didn't know what to expect initially, but I was pleasantly surprised with these books. The same kind of humour is present between these and the Tintin books, which I enjoy.

I've always liked Jo Zette And Jocko - especially "The Mysterious Ray" books. While not nearly as rich as the Tintin books, you do get to see lots of wonderful Herge artwork that you haven't seen 1000 times before.
