Tintin has always shown himself capable of handling a gun, fist fighting drug smugglers and dealing with the Captain’s benders. But what will he face in L.A.? Will he be able to resist the siren call of the 21st century, the fickle attentions of the ever-hungry blockbuster machine, the translation from static clean lines with a global trajectory to the narcissistic orbits and eye candy of L.A.? He’s entertained generations of fans in print, survived spies, sneak attacks, henchmen, gorillas, trips to the moon and the bottom of the sea. With any luck he’ll manage in L.A. A trilogy though? Played by a kid?
