Tinselled Tintin – A compendium of boy heroes Xmas holidays

tintin-joyeuxnoel

The compendium of boy heroes is having a  yuletide interlude, and what better way to celebrate than with the greatest boy hero of them all. Tucked away in my dusty attic, amongst boxes of baubles, fairly lights and tinsel, I have found a treasure trove of Christmas-related Tintin ephemera to share with you. They are divided into several groups and you can click on them to enlarge them.

The first feature Tintin and his inseparable friend, the world’s bravest tail-wagger, Snowy:
