Greetings from the USA and welcome!

Just curious, how is one named after Tintin in China?

Just "Tintin?"

Hello from the Philippines! :)

My name is Queenie and I'm a high school student in my country.

This forum took my attention when I was trying to find more information about Tintin. Good thing I found this website. Now I know more about Tintin and even Herge himself without opening so many sites!

How did I found out about Tintin? Well it's actually kinda random, my mother bought me a DVD and I know nothing about it at all. So I checked it out, as an eight year old child I have no clue what I am watching. And after watching a few episodes, I kinda got it. All I know before is that Tintin's a very handsome reporter that travels all over the world to get stories and ending up saving the day. Many years later, I've known that Spielberg will produce a movie about Tintin's Secret of The Unicorn last 2011. I've read it in an almanac. I was so overjoyed back then. Then when it released at the first day, I immediately watched it. Even though many doesn't like the 2011 movie, I like it very, very much until now. The way they made the characters in CGI. Then I have read somewhere in the internet that Spielberg will release another Tintin film in 2015, and that news alone makes me so happy.

I also read all of the official comics of Tintin and also some illegal ones (Tintin in Thailand, I dont want t continue reading that anymore and the completed Alph Art). So I can clearly see the difference between the comics and the 90's edition.

So yeah, I'm done introducing. I wish I could be involved in some discussions of 2015! Until we meet again! :D

Thanks!

Yes, her name is Chinese is just "Ding Ding" (the official translation of Tintin in Chinese). She is in England now; though she thinks the origin of her name is like a joke, she picked "Christine" as her English name to derive the nickname "Tintin". By the way, her cat is called "Milou"...

Hello, fellow Tintinologists.
I live in France and am a retired professor (I used to teach French language, literature, philosophy, general knowledge and computer sciences to science students aged 17 to 22).
Among my many readings, some comics have been major interests, mostly French, Belgian, Italian, and American classics.
Tintin has a special status, since I took my first reader's steps with Red Rackham's Treasure when I was five.
I am always very pleased to share and discover when Tintin is involved, and this website sounds very promising.
Although not the creative type, I found much inspiration in my favorite albums, both for written and graphic works. I wrote various studies and spin-off stories, and used many frames or strips for recreation. Of course, this has to remain private, but at least, fortunately, I can rely on my children and grandchildren.
I recently completed an extensive exploration of all the elements of Marlinspike Hall, and found it quite rewarding to give it a maximum of coherence. I don't know whether I should now use all the material for traditional (2D or 3D), or digital modelling.
Next project should be a scale model of a merry-go-round or carousel sporting vehicles from the Adventures.
Looking forward to exchanging opinions and ideas about our common interest.
Greetings from France,
Stanley Cubic, aka Jean-Luc Dewez.

Hi,
My name is Jonathan and I am French and a French teacher in Newcastle in the UK.
I always been a Tintin fan, however this passion seems to be becoming quickly an obsession. I bought books for my pupils and now looking to add to my existing collection.
I am not very familiar with the buying and selling process and valuation of books and looking for tintinologist to support me in my search.

All the best to everyone
Jonathan

Hi Castafiore Emerald a.k.a. Queenie!

Hi, I'm Kyle too and also from the Philippines! Mabuhay ang mga Tintin fans dito as ating bansa lol (Long Live the Filipino Tintin fans here! for those who can't understand Filipino)

Guess I am not the only Tintin fan here in this country, anyways you should be called "Tintin" as well, you know, a very common nickname for Filipina girls.

I discovered him during the time I went to a local bookstore (National Bookstore Vito Cruz) and saw some Tintin hardcovers pero it's only an omnibus version..

Then after a few years, as a Whovian myself rediscovered him because of Tumblr fandom crossovers hahahaha :_)

Currently reading "Tintin in America" and "The Broken Ear" in which I got it from a indie bookstore in Manila for only $5. And also watched the Bernasconi Tintin cartoon series, do you already watch it? :)

Anyways, it's great to see a Filipino here in this group!

Hi, fellow Tintinologists!

My friends call me Lexie and I'm from the Philippines. Nice to meet you all!

I'm a 22-year-old Creative, with Animation (and Character Design) and Illustration as my main fields of specialization. On the side note, I'm also a budding journalist of sorts. (hence the username)

I was first introduced to Tintin in elementary in a commercial feature of the Nelvana series in Cartoon Network, where he gets knocked out by a thug (it was a sneak peak from The Crab with the Golden Claws episode). Just after seeing the commercial, I got hooked to Tintin. I wasn't sure why I liked him that time, but I just did. Something about him compelled me. The fascination for Tintin grew more in college when I found the complete comic collection of the series in its art library (Tintin in the Congo and Tintin and the Alph-Art are not available), and appreciated the series not just for the fun of it, but for appreciation of Herge's successful works. Fascination grew to curiosity when I decided to study more about Tintin, with three volumes of The Art of Herge, Inventor of Tintin as my main source material for research. All in all, I've known the Belgian reporter for more than a decade.

Favorite book? I can't say that I can choose between The Blue Lotus, The Crab with the Golden Claws, Destination Moon, Explorers on the Moon, and Tintin in Tibet to be my favorite book.

Oh dear, I apologize for the wall of text. I guess I love the reporter this much.

I hope to hear from upcoming forums soon! I would want to know everyone's views on Tintin, and I can share whatever I can about him too!
