There are a few things in this world that rival a Tintin comic. I started reading them when I was very young and used to spend my summer holidays in Calcutta. One comic a day was my regular quota. Even though I have read almost all the Tintins avalable which does not include the older ones like Tintin in the land of the Soviets or later unfinished ones like Tintin and Alph-art, I am ashamed to say that I haven’t finished collecting all the Tintins available in print yet. Earlier, I used to lend them out and that has let to many of the Tintins disappearing. Of late I have come across this book that seems to be every Tintinologist’s fantasy come true. But the hefty price tag ensures that it stays only on my wishlist as of now!
By the way, since my birthday is over this year, I’m not really averse to a new year gift! *cheeky grin*
