Belgian comic book character Tintin faced many great threats in his long career. From the Yeti to dive bombers to Greek Tycoons. And he’s always managed to arise victorious in the end. But how would fare against something darker? And older? Much, much older? Like the “elder gods” of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos? Well, artist Murray Groat has imagined just such a series of confrontations in these covers for imaginary Tintin/Lovecraft mash-ups. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
Two rare “Tintin” volumes were stolen in Belgium this summer. The first was a first edition of Tintin au Congo (Tintin in the Congo) allegedly taken from a glass case at the Royal Museum Of Mariemont in Belgium. The second was a first edition of Le Crabe aux pinces d’or (The Crab with the Golden Claws) was allegedly taken from a sale in Namur, Belgium. The video above supposedly shows these thefts and the couple involved.
Tintin has been a popular comic book character in Europe since the forties. The character is expected to gain greater fame with the release, later this year, of “The Adventures of Tintin”. A CGI mocap film, directed by Steven Speilberg, and produced by Peter Jackson.

Yup, we’re talking fonts today. God, we’re geeky!

Tintin is a Beligian comic which ran from 1929-1976. It was the creation of cartoonist Georges Remi under the pen name Hergé, a play on his initials. The Tintin stories mix comedy and adventure in an infectious combination which has thrilled fans all over the world for decades. Hergé’s art style is a mix of cartoonish characters against more realistic backgrounds. He is especially noted for his drawings of airplanes and other vehicles which are rendered with great accuracy.
