Ratings and Reviews
Superb modern presentation of these classics
This is an excellent app, allowing access to the entire Tintin canon and then some. The digital conversions are flawless, and the vibrancy of the colours that the medium allows makes for a new level of experience of these wonderful cartoons and stories. The extras (background info, ‘young reader’ and ‘travel diaries’) are encyclopaedic, very well laid out and informative, with many interesting archive photos. These are a sort of digital take on footnotes, and I found it made a second-read of the stories very fulfilling. This is an exemplar of how to present and enhance this sort of work using the iPad platform, and Herge-Moulinsart should be lauded for their efforts.
Note that if you purchase the ‘entire works’ via the discounted offer, this does not provide access to the re-colourised versions of Land of the Soviets, Congo or America, nor the monograph by Philippe Goddin. Nevertheless, this is still a substantial bargain. The language issues noted by some reviewers appear to have been fixed - if you can see the titles on the initial bookshelf in your language of choice, then the full volumes via the mass-purchase will be in that language.
Falling for Tintin all over again
I loved the Tintin books as a child - the beautiful detail of the drawings, the non stop adventure, epic landscapes espionage, corruption all tackled with fearless abandon by our hero (plus snowy & the captain). This second time around years later I wasn’t expecting to be so gripped and amused. Herge is a master storyteller (especially in his more mature works from the black island onwards) and although some passages have dated in 70 years Tintin’s swashbuckling decency still shines through. Forget the Spielberg disaster, these books are the only authentic way to understand the genius of Herge.
Made a massive mistake
Oops. I totally love the app, but I made a whopper of a mistake thinking that if I bought all the albums for 54 pounds they would be in English. Stupidity! I bought, straight away realised my mistake and tried to correct. Sadly I can’t get a refund from the App Store as they say there is no refund for this purchase. 54 quid down the drain. Would have been happy to purchase the albums individually, but reticent to pay out even more money after my mistake.
Awesome customer service from both Apple and Moulin
art. All resolved. Thank you!
