Tintin on France stamps

In the comic book series, Tintin is a young reporter who is drawn to dangerous international intrigues in which his quick thinking, bravery and chronic good luck save the day. Almost every adventure features Tintin sent off to investigate an assignment, but rarely does he actually turn in a story without first getting caught up in an adventure.The Adventures of Tintin, a series of comic books drawn and written by the Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, better known as Hergé.
France Post has issued stamp featured the great icon of comic book series, Tintin on one souvenir sheet. The sheet depicted how is action of Tintin.
Readers and critics have described Tintin as a well-rounded, yet open-ended character, noting that his rather neutral personality—sometimes labelled as bland—permits a balanced reflection of the evil, folly and foolhardiness which surrounds him.Tintin's age is never accurately revealed. The comics treat him as a worldly young adult, as shown by the absence of concerns like parents or school, as well as by his wide solo travels all over the globe. Tintin is an intelligent and imaginative character with good powers of deduction. However, while in deep thought, he tends to be absent-minded and fails to notice things around him. He also seems to know multiple foreign languages and reads extensively on a variety of subjects.Tintin has no family members: any mention of a mother, father or siblings is noticeably absent. He makes no mention of his family throughout the series.
