Hi all,

Just finished a Tintin tribute comic. Please check it out -- all feedback is greatly appreciated.

I read this earlier today from your post to the mailing list. I enjoyed it a lot and hope Tintin in Australia is forthcoming. Excellent work all round, but a couple of pieces of constructive feedback...

1. Safari Jack - Nice character but the name didn't work for me, as an australian Jack is a good name but a surname would be more appropriate and sinister.

2. I really like the title of the work 'The Flute of the Wendigo,' I think you should stick with it for the portions in Australia (where I assume the Wendigo plays a part). It has an air of mystery to it, if you want to have two seperate titles for the comics I'd suggest Tintin in Australia over Down Under (more in keeping with Herge's Tintin in ... titles)

Nice work, look forward to reading more

I know how hard it is to make a great comic, and this one is great. What I like the most about it is the plot: from the opening frames, it pulls you right in. Also, I'm glad it is colored in. Coloring can be so frustrating. I am eagerly awaiting the next comic!

Thanks for feedback, right now I'm trying to collect as much as possible so future ones will be better. And there will be, most definitely ;)

Great job! Its good to see an English Tintin webcomic that is well written (the only other one I've seen was Tintin in the Land of the Serviettes). The art is colourful and the style interesting. I can see you are improving in your drawing skills as you go and that house in Paris has a original feel to it.

I also know how long it takes to make a comic so I was wondering how long each page took you on average and how long you've been doing it for?

Also its great to finally see a Tintin adventure in Australia, but most Aussies don't actually act like Mick Dundee you know. I think a more appropriate title for the second part would be "The Great South Lands" as this is what Australia is reffered to. "Down Under" has been done to death.

I was always wondering why Tintin never visited Australia in an actual adventure, so some years ago I began a Tintin adventure set there, but abandonded it as I couldn't think up an interesting non-cliche plot line. I wanted it to reflect the true Australia (being an Aussie and all) and so I didn't want it to involve diamond or animal smuggling or the like. I was thinking of doing one about the bunyip but I started the script and never finished the art. I may start it up again.

Anyway, thanks for doing this and I'll be eagerly awaiting the next installment!

Thanks to all who took the time to read it. :) I'm pretty slow so each page took roughly 2 hours to compose, pencil, pen, then another 2 - 2 1/2 hours to color it using Gimp, not photoshop. (most text was unreadable with my hand writing so I had to rewrite it using the airbrush tool) I started about in the beginning of 2005 so about 5 - 6 weeks total. I'll rethink the title a bit when I begin the next one the day after president's day weekend.

Time, it would seem: Michael Farr has said that by far and away the greatest collection of unused research material in Hergé’s archive was that which he gathered on Australia and things Australian. Mr Farr feels that had Hergé had more time, Tintin would almost certainly gone to the Land Downunder.

Some nice work there, Tinsith; you haven’t slavishly aped the Hergé style, but the characters are in the spirit, and I really liked your pull-back effect down the alley.

Looks as good as it gets. Tintin here may not look the way Herge draws him, but there are many ways to skin a cat. Well done as a cartoon strip. I'm already looking forward to a complete episode about Tintin in Australia!
