Herge, Tintin on the Net

The Belgian Centre for Comic Strip Art is museum celebrating the huge success of Belgian comics such as Tintin and The Smurfs as well as less well known comics.

Recently Kostas from the German site Greek Geek visited the museum and sent us a video of what is inside the museum.

I’ve been considering a trip to Brussels for a while and the museum is one of things I really want to see. So thank you Kostas, I’m now really keen to go.

If you want to work on the Tintin movie, now is your chance.

Weta Digital (Peter Jackson’s production company) is looking for LA-based artists with experience in Motion Builder for a limited period shoot. Immediate start. Applicants should be technically competent and comfortable working within a team that is processing a high-volume of data.

The top European comics festival has kicked off for the 36th time in the French city of Angouleme. Comics, including Tintin, are serious cultural in Europe so this isn’t the usual hoard of fanboys you might find at an American or British comics fair.

Fearless reporter Wim Lockefeer, best known for his excellent The Ephemerist blog has a special report on Angouleme on the Forbidden Planet blog. It has some Tintin related nuggets and is well worth a read.

Two minutes of Tintin fun as a couple of Tintin fans and their dog make a homage to The Crab with the Golden Claws

It is all in French, which I don’t speak, but I suspect there are some clever jokes in it. However it is still remarkably recognisable as The Crab with the Golden Claws. Well worth a watch.

Note: I found this on the Facebook group: The Adventures of Tintin. There is also a Tintin group and a Don’t Let Dreamworks Ruin Tintin group.
