THE INTERVIEW TINTIN He’s not your regular comic book superhero like Superman . He isn’t big and strong and he dosn’t have superpowers . His head is a circle with a small round nose , two dots for his eyes and a little bit of orange hair . Yet , Tintin is one of the most popular comic strip hero es in the world . The Tintin comic books have been translated from French into 80 languages , and millions of copies have been sold in many countries around the world . The Adventures of Tintin was created in 1929 by Hergé , a Belgian artist who worked for a newspaper . He decided to create a comic strip series for the children’s section of the newspaper . The comic strip was about a young reporter who travels around the world looking for villains . The stories were full of mystery and adventure , and quickly became a hit with both children and adults . The plot of each comic strip starts with a mystery that Tintin and his faithful dog , Snowy , have to solve . Tintin succeeds because he is curious and clever . He is an outside-the-box thinker , and he is able to drive any car or motorcycle , and f ly any airplane or helicopter . He never gives up on a quest and always finds a way out of every difficult situation ! What makes Tintin so popular all over the world ? First of all , Tintin is so simply drawn that people of all ages from different cultures can identify with him . Second , the comic books are full of fantasy , suspense and humor . The settings of the stories are real places like Africa , China and even the moon . Finally , Hergé was skilled at creating interest and tension that lasted throughout the whole comic book . Surprisingly , few people in the United States knew about Tintin until 2011 , when Steven Spielberg made The Adventures of Tintin into an animated movie . Spielberg first read the Tintin comic books in 1983 and wanted to make a movie based on them , but it took almost 30 years for him to do so . Now , Tintin has started a new adventure – as an international movie star . 1 comic strip series 2 curious 3 fantasy 4 suspense
