"Get Fuzzy": Tintin references in newspaper comic-strip

#1 · Posted: 9 Jun 2004 05:31
I wonder if any of you read a daily strip called Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley?
I was just reading my collection over, and I noticed the many Tintin references throughout the book. The main character has been drawn reading Explorers on the Moon, the walls sometimes have Tintin posters on them, and once there was a strip set on the subway with one of the passengers being Captain Haddock!
I enjoy it when the artists reveal their interests through these references..

Oh yeah. Rob has a Tintin shirt on, there are Tintin posters, Haddock is on the subway, and another coincidence is that I borrowed a Get Fuzzy book from my friend Brendan (a Tintin fan), and in one comic (where Satchel is reading the French-Italian dictionary) The Black Island is on a shelf (I think).

There was an article on Darby Conley in this Sunday's L.A. Times, in which he credited the Tintin books as a major influence.
I've tried to copy the link but the L.A. Times is a subscription service. Sorry!
