I remember reading Tintin in elementary school. I wonder if all its racism and Euro-centrism had an effect on me. I would borrow them from the library repeatedly and even went so far as to try to tape the TV show (just the audio, it was all I had and I was that desperate!).

It's all pretty interesting, the academic work surrounding Hergé and his comics. This sudden interest was triggered by my copy of the first 3 adventures of Tintin that I picked up at the Cartoon Art Museum.
