Okay, so, The Adventures of Tintin
opens in the USA on December 21st.
AND I CAN'T WAIT.
A couple of weeks ago, I had an idea of a fun way to pass the month of December while I wait on tenterhooks for the movie to come out. Since I grew up reading 21 albums of Tintin (therefore excluding Soviets, Congo and Alph-Art, which are not even LISTED on the backs of my albums), I will feature each of the books for every day of the month, counting down to the release date. ...Which means I'll be posting the day I see the movie. Oh. lol.
...And since it's ALMOST like counting down to Christmas (just a few days off), I decided to call it an Advent Calendar.
Similar. Nooot the same. But similar. Ish.
Basically, what I've got planned is to re-read each book either the day before/the day of, draw one of my favourite scenes/panels (in Hergé's style, as best as I can manage, and NO tracing!), and write a little blurb regarding my own experiences reading it, both growing up and grown-up.
