Speaking as a European I wonder if theres more users who read European comics.

Like Tintin,Asterix,The blue coats,Lucky Luke and spirous?

A fellow Asterix and Obelix fan?! *highfives*

I'm not European, but Tintin and Asterix and Obelix were (are?) big in India, so my relatives there have sent me lots and I grew up reading them. To this day, I still do. I love them! ^-^

Now I feel bad for only using Asterix as a example. :P

But I have read all Asterix comics that exist. What did you think about the one where Asterix visit India?

Heehee! No worries. You have nothing to feel bad about. ^^

And I loved that one! It's been such a long time since I read it, though! I only own two or three of the comics; I read a bunch of others when I went to India a few years ago. But I love the humor and everything! It's such a good comic book series. <3

Tintin's great, but I need to read more!

And Asterix is one of those things I grew up with but just can't remember anything about any more - except the basic details I guess.

I think some of the humor of Asterix and Obelix might be lost on young children, but it's a fantastic comic series and one that I really grew to appreciate once I was older. ^^

I don't know much about Tintin, but from what I've seen, it's pret-ty racist.

Haha!

Yeah pretty much. Although there's definitely development over the series. From what I hear, the first few are absolute shockers. They edited later editions of Tintin in the Congo to change it from Tintin teaching the local children about the glory of their European motherland to teaching them about maths.

And I believe the first book, Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, was written under the ultra conservative fist of his boss/editor at the time.

The story of Herge is actually pretty interesting in itself.

I should check it out. I know I was surprised at how funny Tintin still was to me. Captain Haddock is great~

Captain Haddock is hilarious! And there is racist stuff, probably owing to the time period Herge wrote in. XD

His boss also collaborated with the Nazis during the German occupation of Belgium.

So there are some antisemitism here and there. :P

Most likely. That's from Tintin and the Shooting star, isn't it? Tjat panel is edited in my edition. ^^

^ Yes it is.

In addition the sponsor of the rival expedition sent to find the meteorite is called Blumenstein in case you did not get it. :P

In the new editions he was renamed Bohlwinkel.
