Hi, Tintin has always been my favourite comic book. Well, truth be told Tintin is a hero of mine and that too the first one.

Hi folks!

My name's Venla, I'm about to turn 18 and I'm from Finland. My login is the Finnish name of Skut, just because he was my favorite character as a child.

I think I came across the comics before the TV-series, but I'm not sure. What I do know is that the first Tintin comic I read wasDen svarta ön (The Black Island), in Swedish, because I'm bilingual and speak both Finnish and Swedish fluently. I also remember that the second book I read was Solens tempel (Prisoners of the Sun). My dad once got the books from the library and I just loved them. Too bad I don't remember too much from when it happened, I bet those would be some sweet memories.

The first episode of the TV-series I watched was Explorers on the Moon (in Finnish), part two. I remember that because it's the first episode on our home-made DVD of Tintin. I used to think my dad was silly, putting dates on every disc he made, but thanks to his markings I can conclude I was 9 years old at the time I watched my first episode of Tintin.

It's not until a few years back that I started to get into Tintin again. Actually, it was the 2011 movie "Secret of the Unicorn" that made me watch old Tintin-episodes again. And falling in love with them all over.

Until last month, I had never owned a Tintin album. I was on a trip to Paris with my family and we came across this comic book store. There was a lot of Tintin albums, some manga and a lot of merchandise. I bought 8 of the albums in French (I've studied French for 4 years) and my, was I happy. I still haven't read them all, and sometimes I just look at the pictures when I'm tired of straining my brain into reading French. I love every one of them, and thanks to them I have a larger French vocabulary.

Whoa, that was a long story.

Hi! I'm known as Ruwani to most people and I'm 19. I'd been a fan of Tintin since I was 3. To be honest, Tintin influenced many decisions in my life, such as learning French and other languages, improving my outlook on the world and travelling. Also, Tintin is the only boy who has ever stuck by me through thick and thin. Nice to meet you all!

Hi all

My name is Paul and I live in New Zealand. I love all the Tintin books and particularly like the way they are drawn. My favourite Tintin book would be Tintin in Tibet and I also love The Blue Lotus.
I like travelling so I think that is a another part of the Tintin books that has appealed to me.

Hello people, My name is Breno, I'm from Brazil, although I'm only 16, Tintin was present in my life since I was born, I never thought in joining a forum about my childhood hero, but I think this is the time and the right place to stay and share my fun with others fans.
Well that's all, any questions, or if you're willing to talk ( about Tintin or not ) just e-mail me :)

Hello everyone, my name is Koyena, and I am from Calcutta, India.

I am just a 13 year old, but going to be 14 in a couple of months.
As for Tintin, my day begins with Tintin, goes on with him and ends with him.
I've read all the comics except for Alph-Art, and my favourites are Tintin in Tibet and Prisoners of the Sun.
Tintin has helped me in every single thing until today, starting with my studies, interest in traveling, learning French, codes, doing detective work, drawing, with nothing to say about madness;)

And that means everything taught in school, starting from physics to history gets related with Tintin. Even my friends are Tintinologists, and therefore even my friendship depends on Tintin.

Well, if anyone wants to know how I discovered Tintin, I'll say it was a sort of unusual way. Here it is anyway.

In our winter vacation of Class 6, after the annual exams were over, (Dec. 2011), I was watching a few cartoons and movies (Tom & Jerry, Baby's Day Out etc.) on the computer (I don't watch the T.V. or see many movies either), when I came across an all 23 episodes Tintin D.V.D.
And the only thing I remembered was a crazy sea captain calling out a few rude names that used to make me laugh. But I didn't remember anything else.
Also, it was around that time that the 3D animated Secret of The Unicorn was released. So I decided to watch the cartoons. And hey ho! From the time I started watching, I became a Tintinologist.
The next day we were supposed to go out for the day, but I managed to persuade my surprised mother to stay at home, since I wanted to complete watching all the episodes.
Then of course, I saw the animated movie, and after that I've practically made everyone around me mad with Tintin.

And I must add another thing, Tintin has always brought me good luck.

So there. Must have written a bit too much.
So long. Great to be a member here.

Hadtins, the joker:)

Good to see fellow blue blistering barnacles around!
I have been a fan of Herge since as young as the age of 4 (!).
Looking forward to get to know other Tintin-geeks around here (is this the place to interact with the other members btw?)

And oh, I am from India if anyone is interested to know.

Greeting from Manchuria, China!

My name is Carmella and I am a high school student in US.

When I was six I watched the Canadian cartoon, but my first glimpse of the "Cigars of the Pharaoh" scared me. Several days later, I again had the courage to watch this cartoon, and this time it was the "Seven Crystal Balls". I was so frightened that I dared not watch any Tintin stuff until five years later... Anyway, I finally accomplished the mission of reading/watching all the Tintin stories. Tintin is always quite famous is China; some of my friends were name after him.

I never knew this fan page! Nice to meet you all!
