Hi everyone! I'm Rebecca, a 13 year who lives in Sydney, Australia! I first read a Tintin book when I was in grade 5 and I recall not being able to understand what the books were going on about until I reread them last year in grade 7. King Ottokar's Sceptre was the first Tintin book that I read back then and now I read the books over and over. The funny thing was that when I was about 10 years old, I enjoyed the books so much that I decided to write a letter to Herge inquiring him if he was planning on writing any more books in the series, little knowing that he was Belgian and had died a long way back!

Welcome Rebecca! For those of us not familiar with the Australian education system, how old were you in grade 5?

Hi, I'm Nikita and I suppose I'm what most people would call a 'newbie' in that I'v only recently become a fan. I've just finished my first year of A Levels, and for my second year of French, I have to produce an essay about anything related to the French language...which is where I stumbled upon Tintin. In my search for any information I could find, I have found myself becoming more and more interested in the actual stories, rather than just the history and interesting facts which is what I'm researching. I only own one book, which my boyfriend brought me back from France a couple of weeks ago: L'ile Noir, along with another book (in French) outlining the plot of all the Tintin books (I think!!).

Hi Nikita, welcome! What's the title of the second book you refer to?
I wish I could have written about Tintin for my French A-level... but we had to do Marcel Pagnol instead. I shan't complain because his work is superb.

Well I sappose I should tell my story now after reading everyone else's. My name is Christopher, I am 33yr. and from Vancouver, Canada. I started reading Tintin at the age of 7 or 8. Over the years I have managed to gather 22 of the albums. I went on to start a comic collection that makes my moving a nightmare. I also worked as a comic store manager so thats partly to blame. These days I work as a brewer for a small microbrewery and in spare time I hike, climb and try to get lost in the mountains.

Which store? Golden Age on Granville? Comic shop on 4th?

And which brewery? Granville Island? :)

Ah, PoMo... out of my, er, sphere of influence. :)

Already there! And it's the rainy season... makes the Sunshine Coast look like it sounds, by comparison! I got drenched today...

(Note to the Aussies: that's our Sunshine Coast in British Columbia that I mean... I'm sure yours is very sunny). :)

Greetings. I'm over 21, actually quite a lot over 21. I bought Tintin for my children and thought they were great. My particular favourite is The Blue Lotus, which I remember being first published back in 1983, and I try and collect this in as many different languages as possible. I have about 22 or 23 so far. I always visit the Tintin shop when in London and recently went to the Tintin at Sea exhibition at teh National Maritime Museum. I also went to the Comic Art Museum in Brussels last year. Obviously, I'm a nutcase.

Best wishes

Tony
