Sunday strip in full

I'm a big fan of Tintin. My favorite adventure is 'Tintin in Tibet'. If you look closely you'll see Ollie is reading it in the drop panel. Quentin is enjoying 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.

I enjoy Tintin too. I like how you worked it into the comic strip. My favorite character is Captain Haddock. Professor Calculus and the detectives Thompson and Thomson are always good for a laugh. Is Tintin pronounced Tintin or Tonton? My dad always swears it's Tonton, but I heard it pronounced Tintin on the radio...maybe it's pronounced different ways in different places?

Your dad may have a point. The Belgians pronounce it 'TunTun' or 'TonTon' with the 'n' being almost silent. You're right though, it would be pronounced differently in different countries. Some characters have totally different names. Snowy is called Milou in French and Thomson & Thompson are Dupont & Dupond.
