Tintin gets its first comic republished with a festive event

To celebrate its 88th birthday the publishers have decided to republish the comic, written by Belgian comic artist Hergé, in colour. A special event like that can’t pass us quietly of course, so it will be celebrated big. To celebrate the comic and its republished version there will be a celebration weekend hosted in Brussels, Belgium. This weekend will take place on Saturday January, 7 and Sunday January, 8 2017.
