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.
