I am Skirmantas Malinauskas, artist and journalist.

Tintin was my favorite character when I was young. Now I have the idea to reconstruct all the Tintin covers in 3D.

Tintin fan from New Zealand.

I was fortunate to have had my parents subscribe to the evening paper "The Auckland Star". The Tintin strip came out in this paper from 1962 through to 1967. 13 books in 5 years. Half page per day!. Black and white.

It intrigues me immensely that Tintin enthralled me as a 6 year old, and yet still has immense enduring appeal as a now 60 plus yr old.
My younger self enjoyed the adventure and suspense. The older version 'Me' now enjoys Herge's humour, attention to detail, the human observation and interactions, the wonderful play on words, and the eccentricities of Calculus and Haddock.

Well done Herge!. Also, Huge thanks to Leslie Lonsdale-Cooper and Michael Turner for making it all possible for us English speakers.

I am an Indian student studying physics and mathematics .
I was introduced to the world of Tintin at the age of 6 when I first read Tintin in America . By the age of 8 , I had read all the works except for Soviets , Congo and Alph-Art . I managed to get hold of Soviets and Alph-Art (the Yves Rodier version) later but I was forced to read Congo later in Bengali as its English print is very hard to come by in India .
What I find most interesting about Tintin is that it appealed to me whenever , at whatever age I read it . It was all slapstick for me when I first read it . It was only in later readings that I was able to appreciate the political messages in works like Picaros and The Broken Ear or notice the Cold War undertones in The Calculus Affair . Tintin in Tibet genuinely moved me and the sarcasm in Land of Black Gold and The Castafiore Emerald hit home late but hard .
On a lighter note , my favoured swear words at school were bashi-bazouk , ectoplasm , kleptomaniac and troglodyte .

Hello, my name is Aryan.
I'm such a crazy fan of Tintin alright!
I love him so much. Let me start my story.
My mother used to read Tintin when she was young; then she introduced me to Tintin, and I'm so grateful for that moment.
I started reading Tintin when I was 9 - I had got 2 books from the library, namely Destination Moon and Explorers on the Moon (such a coincidence, they were a continuing story!).
At first I found the vocabulary hard, since I couldn't understand the technical terms of the rocket, but I enjoyed the story.
Slowly, I started reading more Tintin comics, and developed a crazy passsion for them.
You know I'm so serious , that I'm actually, with the help of someone, ready to start the Tintin series again (if it's possible)!
I have read all the books by Hergé, have the Tintin X-Box game and a sticker-book and have seen the movie multiple times.
I love Tintin - by seeing the length of this answer you can understand that too. :0

Coming to the question can we start a new series? :)

Greetings to my fellow Tintin fans. I am a lawyer living in New Zealand. My view is that we are never too old for Tintin and Tintin is never too old for us.

I'm a Tintin fan from China, an university student now.
You can't imagine how excited I was when I found this website accidentally yesterday, wishing to find out how tall is Tintin because I want to make a figure of him myself. I can't help reading your discussions, since I finally meet the people who are crazy about Tintin just like me.
I have been reading the series since primary school and bought Tintin in the Land of Soviet and Tintin and the Alph-art in middle school. I read the books for hundreds of times and since then Tintin has become who I wanted become of.
The books I read at first was traslated from the Enlish version, but these years a new Chinese version was published, which is directly translated from the French version.
Hope to be friend with all of you!:)
