Review: Tintin in America

Tintin in America
Tintin in America by Hergé

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve started reading through the whole Tintin series again (partially in preparation for the movie) and the experience is very similar to re-watching your old childhood TV shows. You get that warm, nostalgic feeling which slowly dissolves into doubt and and leaves you wondering how you could possibly enjoyed something so bad. This particular book has a lot of racist overtones and the dialogue is pretty poorly written (which I guess is really the norm for any comic book written in the early 20th Century).

Overall, though, the book is still a fun read and I can’t wait to re-read the rest.

One thought on “Review: Tintin in America

  1. Tintin comics high five, these are my favorites!

    Though to be frank, the first two (or three depending on whether you count Tintin in Soviet) I find to be rather boring and dull. It’s not until Cigars of the Pharaoh (or whatever it’s translated to) that things get into gear.
