"To really write for children, you have to think like a child. And to read a children’s book, you probably have to let go of grown-up reasoning. These thoughts occurred to me as I read two newly-translated books about Tintin and his creator, Georges Remi, better known to the world as Hergé. (The pen name is composed of Remi’s initials backwards, pronounced as in French.) There is much to be learned from these studies and others by “Tintinologists”—about Hergé, about the “world” of Tintin, even about twentieth-century politics. But as I read Pierre Assouline’s well-written biography of Hergé and Jean-Marie Apostolidès’s erudite study of the Tintin books, a version of the question we Jews love to ask kept coming to mind: Are they good for Tintin?

by Jean-Marie Apostolides and Herge: The Man Who Created Tintin

Return of Bee.
After several years Jason Little has started posting weekly Bee Comix
again. If you missed the original, make sure to check out the first 13 episodes.
There is something very Tintin
-ish about the animation that I find attractive.

As matteo's thread
noted earlier this week, the Godzilla PR Monster is rampaging over the University of Kansas
, but that's just a stop on the way to his ultimate destination: The Hollywood Walk of Fame
, where the Big Green Guy will get his own star just in time for the premeire of his latest flick
, joining previous ficticious recipients
Big Bird, Bugs Bunny, Kermit the Frog, Pee-Wee Herman, Mickey Mouse, The Rugrats and Woody Woodpecker (and maybe Clayton Moore as The Lone Ranger), and ahead of Donald Duck
In other news, The Democratic Republic of Congo is comparing Belgium's foreign minister to Tintin (and not in a nice way).
And Daffy Duck is running for president
. (Throwing his beak into the ring?) The state of American politics must be pretty pathetic if Daffy gets the nod over Bugs Bunny...

Sure, you all know Barberella from the campy 60's cult film
, and our own vacapinta
turned us on to the classic French anti-hero, Fantomas
. Yet there are even more sleazy, Eurotrash cartoon characters to adore at Cool French Comics
: the diabolical Satanik
, the [ahem] big-top
, and in a shocking twist, my childhood idol TinTin
going main a la main
with the Dark Knight.
