Welcome to another installment of Easter Eggs in Comics! Click here for the archive!
So recently, a friend of mine gave me a bunch of TINTIN comics, by Hergé.
I've never read TINTIN, so I was very excited to read them. But I thought it fitting that he gave me these books the exact same week I bought FANTASTIC FOUR, volume 3 #1, by Scott Lobdell, Alan Davis, and Mark Farmer.
In this story, the Fantastic Four is taken to France, where they meet a bunch of protesters who want to keep old structures intact instead of rebuilding them. One of them looks familiar.
Yep, that's Tintin, folks. "Actually, I'm Belgian," is because Tintin IS Belgian, but his comics were published primarily in France!
Later on, Tintin has to run away, and what does he say?
"Billions of blistering blue barnacles!" is the catchphrase of Tintin's supporting character, Captain Haddock!
Pretty cool, huh?
