Nick's adventures of Tintin and Snowy

When I was at my mother's house in Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago I discovered this old spoof I'd done of Tintin (click the thumbnail to see the full-scale version). I must've been about 15 when I drew it.

"A parody of Mark's favourite books", says the note on the side -- a reference to the family's firm opinion that my brother Mark (now head of the English department at University of East Anglia) was a philistine who read nothing but Tintin and Asterix. It's not clear whether I drew this Tintin strip to please or tease Mark -- possibly a bit of both. Other strips preserved in the family archives detail the adventures of the jowly Lord James, Private Eye and Handsome Man, modeled on Lord Peter Wimsey.
