Win a Copy of Herge: The Man Who Created Tintin
I have three copies of the new biography Herge: The Man Who Created Tintin to give away in a very simple competition:
If Herge was still writing today, what would his next Tintin book be called?
The best suggestions for 21st Century Tintin titles will get a free copy of the biography. They can be silly or serious, I don’t mind. The winners will simply whichever ones I think are best.
To enter, you can put your suggestion in a comment below or send it via Twitter. Just use the hash tag #21cTintin. If you are a winner, I will contact you via a Twitter or email to get your postal address.
A special thanks to Emily at Oxford University Press for supplying the books.
The competition starts now and will run until the end of the week. So plenty of time to get thinking that ultimate 21st Century Tintin title.
EDIT: Copyright Concerns
We have had some wonderful entries and many of you have written plot summaries to go with the titles. Thank you everyone for your imagination and hard work.
However this puts Tintinology in a dangerous place regarding copyright. The plot outlines can be considered derivative works and are not covered by fair usage. To avoid having the 800 pound gorilla of Moulinsart legal team jumping on my head, I have edited out everything except the titles.
Thank you for everyone who has gone over and above the call of duty to write these wonderful and amusing plot outlines but we have to respect the law of copyright.
