    I guess they would have to also pull copies of The Spirit Archives that have Ebony appearances and/or The Monster Society of Evil collection, what with Steamboat's appearances-that is, if they had such books.

    And isn't Tintin himself a cruel stereotype of the redhair 'crime solver'. When oh when will we stop expecting gingers to solve all our unsolvables?

    That is insane. There will always be something for overly sensitive people to get worked up about. By the way… I think it might be Cary Elwes, unless there is someone named Cary Elves who I have not heard of :D

  4. Mike Gold says:

    Yeah, Shauna. My spell-checker didn't like Cary's real name. At least he has a "real British accent."

    I don't agree with putting them under lock and key.But egads man, the caricatures are racist. It's not being overly sensitive or insanely politically correct to point that out. Or to perhaps move that particular book from the childrens' section.Also, going all reductio ad absurdum by implying that if Spielberg is directing a movie of Tintin and the caricatures of Congolese people in this book are racist then Spielberg must be racist is ridiculous as well. Why is this particular piece of art not allowed to be discussed from multiple perspectives (whether its a good story, whether it has racist imagery, etc)? Why all or nothing?
