Review: Tintin in Tibet

Tintin in Tibet (The Adventures of Tintin)Tintin in Tibet by Hergé
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A good read, set in the mysterious Himalayas. Great, as usual, with lots of cultural insight and beautiful artwork with an exciting and adventurous story line. Hergé is a genius with this kind of thing. My favorite panel is one in which there is a vista of snow covered mountains on every side, with a wrecked plane and the rescuers set in the middle. You really get a sense of the cold, and the loneliness and how small the humans are compared with the cruel mountains around them.
