Tintin and I

VCR alert!

Oh. Sorry.

TiVo alert! PBS will be showing Tintin and I, a documentary about the adventurous boy and his creator. From the website:

Why does the comic strip The Adventures of Tintin, about an intrepid boy reporter, continue to fascinate us decades after its publication? "Tintin and I" highlights the potent social and political underpinnings that give Tintin's world such depth, and delves into the mind of Herge, Tintin's work-obsessed Belgian creator, to reveal the creation and development of Tintin.

If you don't catch the video, you can still take advantage of all the great stuff on the website. See the page titled On Cartooning for interviews with contemporary cartoonists commenting on Herge's influence and the art of cartooning.
