Les Aventures de Tintin
I quite like Tintin. I own the physical books AND I have the Tintin app with all the digital versions. That’s serious commitment to the cause. The… eh… white savior… racially insensitive… Belgian cause.
I mean I would obviously prefer it if Snowy was a German Shepherd (or even a Malinois). And maybe they could have toned down the theme of rampant alcoholism a tad… the fact that there isn’t some sort of attempted intervention to save Captain Haddock and that they continue to let him spiral downwards towards Alcoholic hepatitis is a little… dark.
I have however recently discovered satirical Tintin covers. Some of which are really clever.
I love satire. Potentially even more than I like bread. Although you can’t eat satire. So maybe there is some parity in terms of the joy they bring me.
If only we really had plucky Belgian journalists interjecting themselves into the worlds trouble spots, finding ancient treasures and toppling (fascist) dictators…
Or you you know… maybe not…
