I've never read Tintin, but perhaps I should. He's supposed to have some kind of secret regarding literature.
I have a young relative who was a big Tintin fan when he was even younger. He used to drive his local librarians crazy by ordering Tintins they didn't have through interlibrary loan.
I will admit it. I showed him how to do it.
Anyway, if this guy ever finds out that Tintin may actually be literature, it will probably destroy his understanding of life and the universe and everything.
Thanks to Blog of a Bookslut for tipping me off to Tintin and the Secret of Literature.
