Spell Saab

I grew up reading a lot of comics – Archie, Garfield, Peanuts, Calvin & Hobbes just to name a few. They were all mostly from my grandmother’s collection of coffee table books. I looked forward to Sundays because The Philippine Star had a special Sunday Comics section! After reading, we’d use them to cover our school notebooks.

The Adventures of Tintin was a different story. They were very well preserved and for a small girl like me to hold a “big” comic book was extremely exciting. It’s more than twice the size of the usual Archie digest and the pages were glossy! The dialogue was far more advanced and I couldn’t get enough!

I went to Singapore a few months ago and spotted The Tintin Shop there! We weren’t allowed to take photos which was a definite bummer.

Fast forward to Fully Booked’s Free Comic Book Day last May 3rd when I found out that The Tintin Shop was opening right here in Manila! As Tintin’s dog Snowy would say: WOOAH WOOAH!!

Of course I went to the official launch last Wednesday! It was so much fun!! But before anything else — have you seen the new T-shirts at Fully Booked?! I just saw these and I’m in love!

Georges “Hergé” Remi, the creator of Tintin, was known for his “clean-line” style of drawing.

I’ve got that big poster on the right! Bought it in Singapore thinking it would be my only chance. Now I know where I can get more Tintin memorabilia!

The Adventures of Tintin shot to popularity back in the day because it was a happy distraction from the World War.
