The Tintin books were cherished. They opened my eyes to the world, enthralled me with amazing stories, nurtured my love of cars, and above all encouraged a sharp humor and outlook I carry to this day. Forget Mad Magazine, this was my realm. Captain Haddock getting drunk and raging after the bad guys was pure greatness! Still keep a set of these in my office!
