    No, I wasn't aware of this. Is their music good?
    In any case Hergé's Tintin had a tremendous influence on many people, styles and developements. Tintin's popularity did so much to make comics an accepted genre that left behind the kidstuff level. Funny enough, Tintin himself is a somewhat boring, rather uncharismatic little chap. It is all the other cast around him, and his oft brilliantly invented antagonists (including the "Yeti"), that really make up the fun or are just truly endearing. Wasn't it fun learning all the insults Captain Haddock had in store? Wasn't it fun figuring out if Professor Calculus' inventions might really work? Didn't we gleefully wait for the next mishap that would befall the Thom(p)sons? Didn't we feel the loneliness of the Yeti after Tintin rescues his friend Chang from this supposed "abominable" Snowman?
