Rare TINTIN Volumes Stolen!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2011 by ghostradioworld

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.
