Unfortunately, Tintin remains generally unknown in the United States, though he is part of folk-lore in Europe and the rest of the world. However, Peter Jackson - Steven Spielberg's stunning cinematographic adaptation in 3D IMAX (review) has helped a bit in popularizing Tintin in USA.

In addition to the 22 books, three more Tintin's are sold mainly separately - Tintin in the Congo, Land of the Soviets and the unfinished Alph Art. The Congo book is a very early work by Herge and may come across to be racially discriminating or cruel to animals - care should be taken while introducing this book to children. However, no Tintin collection is complete without them, as well as an activity-style book titled

A book titled "Tintin & Co." is not at all created by Herge - it is by Michael Farr and is not really a Tintin comic book in the true sense. If you are interested, you can get Tintin and Company here »

The Adventures of Tintin: Collector's Gift Set HardcoverIn the USA, the large-format set of Tintin original classic books as a complete collection is not available easily. You can buy Tintin comics individually here »

The smaller books may not be too bad - Nathan Hale writes about them, "Just got this for Christmas! I was a little worried, having read the reviews about the too small type. But I took the plunge and ripped open the cellophane--the text is FINE! Standard, Manga-sized text, slightly smaller than a western comic print size and actually bigger than a lot of Chris Ware's ACME Novelty Library type. And it's printed very clearly and crisply. If you can read a paperback novel, your eyes should have no trouble with this type. These editions are very easy to read in bed, you can hold them like a novel, the full sized editions aren't as handy for prone reading. Tintin miniaturizes well, the books are bound very nicely, AND it's a super bargain for a hardcover complete Tintin collection. Get it!"

Do not forget to complete your collection by also getting Tintin in the Congo », Tintin in the Land of the Soviets », Tintin and Alph-Art » etc.

There is also available a collectible book to enhance your collection: Tintin: the Complete Companion - by Michael Farr »
