Rastapopoulos actually survived

That's one thing I wonder about. How come Rastapopoulos survived falling from such heights. Is he invulnerable? And how come no-one got down there and checked if he was dead?

there were a lot of fatalities/killings/murders etc. considering that when they were written, they were primarily pitched to children.

I agree 23duff. There is a lot of violence considering the primary audience, but its not graphic.

There is also reported that some other ships have had accidents in the broadcast when Karaboudjan is said to have sunk. I guess that some sailors were killed in those accidents. And in The black island there is accidents mentioned on the radio that have happened in the heavy fog, some of these could be fatal as well.

Red Rackham and his crew in Secret of the Unicorn and the 12 Japanese in The Blue Lotus.

My brother and I spent about half an hour trying to work out who had actually died in Tintin. The only people we could come up with were Jorgen and Wolff. Have I missed anyone?

Just about everyone! There are countless deaths in Tintin, it's just that most take place outside the frame.

Well... in "The Blue Lotus" comic book, Mitsuhirato committed the Harakiri in the end. It's some kind of Japanese's suicide. But in the animated series, he was simply punished by life sentence in jail.

Harakiri is ritual suicide. It was often performed by dishonoured samurai.

I'm not sure what twelve Japanese you are referring to in The Blue Lotus. The only person in there who died that I know of was Mitsuhirato.
