I'm glad you said that Tintinrulz -I also thought '..New World' was terrible. I didn't finish it.

I very much like the Harry Thompson book, I don't know how many times I've read it - it's very well thumbed.

I've borrowed "Tintin: Herge and His Creation" 4 or 5 times now from my library. Its very good though it needs more pictures.

Hey group starting member here.

I have "tintin and the world of Herge' and have read it several times; it gives a good overview of the books and a bit of Herge's life but really only on the early stuff. I don't get an idea of life in the studio but then agian maybe the idea was to centre on the books.

I did buy 'New world"; and found it increadibly insulting as a Tintin fan!! The cover by Roy Licktanstien(sp?) was very cool but other than that.....

I had no idea "Herge and his creation" was so rare, and obviously neither did the book shop i bought it from for $NZ 5.50 (about 2 pounds!). its weird though, becase said shop had first edition english translations for over $NZ50!?
anyway, it is a very informative and comprehensive read.

On amazon.co.uk I found two books by Harry Thompson. They are Tintin: Hergé and his Creation and Tintin: A Biography. What's the difference between the books?

Tintin: A Biography is the hardback edition, whereas Tintin: Hergé and his Creation is the newer paperback edition.

Oh, thanks for clearing that up.
