Amazon was my port of call having decided to buy the paperback versions rather than the hardcovers. OK, they may not last me as long but it's the flexible covers that tickle by nostalgia nerves the most - and they were cheaper.
I've always loved the Tintin books but perhaps have an even fonder recollection of the five minute Saturday morning cartoons Hergé's Adventures of Tintin and can still hear in my head the booming voice announcing, "HERG-AYE'S ADVENT-URES OF TIN! TIN!"
So for the next month or so I intend to submerge myself in Herge's world of the alcoholic Captain Haddock, the absent-minded Professor Cuthbert Calculus, the bumbling Thomson and Thompson, the diva Bianca Castafiore and of course the white fox-terrier Snowy and Tintin himself.
