I read in the newspaper the other day that Steven Spielberg is making a movie of Tin Tin. Or maybe has just acquired the rights. Either way, the news is exciting. I presume that the movie will be live action. Finally we’ll get to see Tin Tin, the boy adventurer, and his white terrier, Snowy, on the screen. And possibly the detective, the Thompson Twins, the professor and other characters from Tin Tin’s various adventures.
The characters were created by the Belgian artist, Herge, who created twenty-one graphic novels over his career. Very successful, fun to read, and still in print after many decades. I hope Spielberg hurries the process forward and that I get to see the movie before long. After all, I’m an old guy. Something to look forward to.
