In this fully revised and expanded edition of this popular pocket-sized reference book the authors offer a comprehensive and critical overview of the Tintin series. Starting with the character's humble origins in the children's supplement of a Belgian catholic newspaper in the 1920s, the authors track Tintin's development and success throughout the decades, including the stormy World War II years. Each book is analyzed in detail, both in the context of the series, and in its larger framework: that of the comic's medium and of society in general. The authors also look at the massive industry that has developed round the figure of Tintin, the trivia, the anecdotes, the movies, and television series, and the multitude of Tintin spin-offs.

Diese Monographie stellt den zweiten Band der Studien Christine Ohnos zur semiotischen Theorie der Pariser Schule dar. Die Autorin hat Wert darauf gelegt, die Monographie so zu gestalten, dass sie ohne Kenntnis des ersten Bandes verständlich ist. Dieser zweite Band entwickelt auf der Basis der Ästhetik Hegels unter Berücksichtigung der ästhetischen Konzeptionen von Kant, Rosenkranz, Vischer und Danto eine allgemeine Ästhetik sowie unter Einbeziehung kunsttheoretischer Positionen der Tradition eine Ästhetik des Visuellen mit dem Ziel, den Synkretismus visueller und verbaler Texte einsichtig zu machen. Die Interpretationen sind dem Karikaturisten Heinrich Zille, den Bildergeschichten Rodolphe Töpffers und den Comics von Hergé gewidmet.

Far Out

Countercultural Seekers and the Tourist Encounter in Nepal

Westerners have long imagined the Himalayas as the world’s last untouched place and a repository of redemptive power and wisdom. Beatniks, hippie seekers, spiritual tourists, mountain climbers—diverse groups of people have traveled there over the years, searching for their own personal Shangri-La. In Far Out, Mark Liechty traces the Western fantasies that captured the imagination of tourists in the decades after World War II, asking how the idea of Nepal shaped the everyday cross-cultural interactions that it made possible. Emerging from centuries of political isolation but eager to engage the world, Nepalis struggled to make sense of the hordes of exotic, enthusiastic foreigners. They quickly embraced the phenomenon, however, and harnessed it to their own ends by building tourists’ fantasies into their national image and crafting Nepal as a premier tourist destination. Liechty describes three distinct phases: the postwar era, when the country provided a Raj-like throwback experience for rich Americans; Nepal’s emergence as an exotic outpost of hippie counterculture in the 1960s; and its rebranding into a hip adventure destination, which began in the 1970s and continues today. He shows how Western projections of Nepal as an isolated place inspired creative enterprises and, paradoxically, allowed locals to participate in the global economy. Based on twenty-five years of research, Far Out blends ethnographic analysis, a lifelong passion for Nepal, and a touch of humor to produce the first comprehensive history of what tourists looked for—and found—on the road to Kathmandu.

En vacances en Suisse, Tintin rêve que son ami chinois Tchang est en grande difficulté, dans un paysage de neige. Peu de temps après, les journaux annoncent le crash d’un avion de ligne au Népal, à bord duquel se trouvait justement le jeune Tchang, en route vers l’Europe pour retrouver Tintin.

Tintin And The Secret Of Literature

Herg's Tintin cartoon adventures have been translated into more than fifty languages and read by tens of millions of children aged, as their publishers like to say, 'from 7 to 77'. Arguing that their characters are as strong and their plots as complex as any dreamt up by the great novelists, Tom McCarthy asks a simple question: is Tintin literature? McCarthy takes a cue from Tintin himself, who spends much of his time tracking down illicit radio signals, entering crypts and decoding puzzles and suggests that we too need to 'tune in' and decode if we want to capture what's going on in Herg's work. What emerges is a remarkable story of hushed-up royal descent in both Herge's work and his own family history. McCarthy shows how the themes this story generates - expulsion from home, violation of the sacred, the host-guest relationship turned sour and anxieties around questions of forgery and fakeness - are the same that have fuelled and troubled writers from the classical era to the present day. His startling conclusion is that Tintin's ultimate 'secret' is that of literature itself. Appearing on the eve of the release of a major Steven Spielberg Tintin film, Tintin and the Secret of Literature should be avidly devoured by not only Tintin lovers but also by anyone with an interest in literature, philosophy or art.

The Graphic Mythology of Tintin - a Primer

From the black and white pages of a Belgian Catholic newspaper in the late 1920s to the virtual world of a 3D CGI Hollywood movie in 2011, the young adventurous reporter Tintin has come a long way. When Georges Remi, under his nom de plume Herge, sent the crudely drawn hero on his maiden voyage to Communist Russia, little did he know that they were both embarking on a lifelong journey - or in the case of the perpetually youthful Tintin, an eternal mythic quest. Though regarded as mere children's comic books by some, the stories reflect the momentous changes of the twentieth century through the globe-trotting adventures of the young reporter and his companions. They also tell a larger tale - about the author's and our inner world. This book gives an overview of the canon of Tintin adventures for new readers, giving insights into the graphic language of the stories, as well introducing the wider field of Tintinology to non-academic readers. It concludes by assessing the recent adaptation from the page to the screen by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson.
