I should say that I have only recently started to read Tintin, but that's totally different.
I love Tintin and am actually trying to stop myself from reading the complete series one after the other. I am not in a hurry to get to the last book.

Oh, how many of us here will no doubt envy you. To have Tintin adventures left to read..!

I enjoy both, but Tintin has the edge. I like Asterix's puns but the stories get repetitive after a while - they bash some Romans, they sink the pirates, they tie Cacofonix to a tree etc. There was a marked dip in quality when Goscinny died; we can only assume that as well as being the writer, he was the ideas man.

I read both Tintin and Asterix, but I don't have the entire set of Asterix books and I'm usually seen reading Tintin. So yes, I can read both but I read Tintin more often.

Back then I didn't realize how much Asterix is like Tintin!
Now I am starting to realize they are basically the same thing! It's so cool!
I sure do love when the Thompson Twins appear in Asterix in Belgium, and when Asterix shouts why defeating Roman troopers "I am on Team tin tin!"
Dogmatix and Milou?
