To get back on the topic of "Tintin Events", then, am I the only one that thought the exhibition was a bit of a letdown?
Not a patch on the 60 Years Of Tintin show in 1989, in my opinion. A bit lacking in content, reflected in the accompanying souvenir book, which devotes a whole section to the names of ships that did not appear in the Tintin books! How pointless, and dull.
In response to Jock123's comment: writers who court controversy with regard to the official line regarding Herge and Tintin end up putting out books with no pictures inside...as was the case with Harry Thompson's book. All the officially commissioned books now seem to begin from a position whereby Herge's work is flawless and cannot be in any way critically examined. But I fear I stray from the topic once more, so I'll put a sock in it!
