The Tintin Shop

Introduction
Loosely based on the store at Covent Garden in London, Tintin and Snowy are in the main ceramic window with best friend Captain Haddock. Thomson and Thompson, the ever bumbling detectives who look like twins, are on the first floor. Created in 1929 by the Belgian Georges Remi, aka Hergé, Tintin’s “boy scout” character was originally for a Catholic youth magazine with Pope Pius XI’s blessings. As a young reporter Tintin sets the world to rights with his trusty terrier Snowy. He is a hero without fear or fault who is surrounded by flawed people that Hergé claimed were all part of himself.
