Tintin turns 86, mourns Charlie Hebdo deaths

Fictional detective Tintin today turned 86 and used the occasion to express his solidarity with the families of the Charlie Hebdo attack victims. The rallying cry for the birthday is “I am Charlie - Je suis Charlie and Tintin expresses solidarity with the families of the victims!”, according to his website.

It says the occasion is marked by the most horrible recent attacks against, among others, employees of Charlie Hebdo. Tintin, the amazing reporter and sleuth with the iconic quiff created by Georges Remi, better known as Herge, appeared for the first time in 1929, January 10 in the comic strip called “Le Petit Vingtieme”, together with his trusted canine companion Snowy. Among his friends, Snowy comes first - the faithful companion with a generous spirit.

Secondly, Tchang appears in the family circle and becomes a lifelong friend of Tintin and almost a brother. Thirdly, Captain Haddock whose debut was to come a good 10 years later is ready to sacrifice his own life for Tintin.
