The Adventures of Tintin: When did you first hear about them?

The first time I saw the Tintin movie, it was Dec. 26, 2011.
I remember the day vividly. We were all going to the movie theater. I remember sitting in there and thinking: This is awesome!!:)

What about you?

I first heard about them after I was handed an album titled 'The Castafiore Emerald' by my mother.

I think it was somewhere in 2014 or 2015 - if we're going to go all anecdotes-y, it was when my Dad showed me a frame from Tintin in Tibet; surprisingly (for me now), I displayed little-to-no-interest!

I only began reading the comics in 2016, the first being The Broken Ear and The Seven Crystal Balls.

I grew up in France so it was hard NOT to know about Tintin or to remember WHEN one first heard about him. It would have been sometime in the mid-1970s.

On the other hand, however, since I regularly travelled between France and the UK, I've built up a mixed collection of English and French editions. For instance, I have the English version of "Destination Moon" but the sequel is the French version, "On a marche sur la lune".

It helps to be bilingual.
