I think it’s really important to encourage children to read Tintin.

Having grown up in Belgium with Tintin... absolutely not. The comic was birthed in racism, and whilst later issues improved, it still has a very 'orientalist' attitude in them.

I never liked those comics as a kid, I tried so many times to like Lucky Luke and Asterix (because the library had them) but they bored me to tears compared to US / UK comics.
