Modernizing Tintin

Modernizing Tintin

From Myth to New Stylizations

(p.98) Chapter Six Modernizing Tintin
The Comics of Hergé

Jan Baetens

Hugo Frey

University Press of Mississippi

This essay considers how Apostolidès’ contention that Tintin must be understood as a “superchild myth” implies that Tintin requires constant updating and revision, two things that are unlikely at best, given Hergé’s dictum that no one else could write comics for the boy reporter.

Keywords:   Hergé, Tintin, Apostolidès, Superchild, Myth
