I (Heart) Hergé

Sorry to have disappeared there for a time, dear readers. I'm totally immersed in "real life" these days--work, family, you know the drill. I have, however, recently written a little piece about Tintin for Blog@Newsarama's summer feature, "I (Heart) Comics!" The essay, which begins to describe my infatuation with Tintin, is called I (Heart) Hergé.

More new content soon.

Miss you, dude. My every-other-day blog stroles weren't the same without you.

Welcome back.

Hooray, another Tintin piece! Well, we didn't have to wait too long for that, did we?

Heh, heh.

But seriously, that was very fine...although you know me, I could've stood for it to be triple the length. Funnily enough, I never really thought about the way Herge situates Tintin in the world of belief and politics, before -- now I find I can't stop thinking about it. As always, you bring it back so neatly to the magical eyes of the child: the bottlecap collection, indeed. Very nicely stated, Jim!

Now...maybe next time you'll do The Shooting Star, or King Ottokar's Sceptre? I could easily read another ten thousand words from you on the subject of Tintin, it's always such a pleasure.

Oh, but I think that link's busted.

Thanks, Shaneshock!

And thank you, plok! More Tintin posts will surely follow...

P.S. I checked the link and it's working now.

if we express our features with text words then it will be not sufficient so, in this matter we have added a website connection to short matters to be analyzed, hence the motive of a short paragraph to high-light the exact features regarded them, as you can see the all features in this aspect.
