the adventures of tintin

Bianca Castafiore from Tintin

Bianca Castafiore is a kindhearted opera singer better known to the world as the Milanese Nightingale, although if you ask Tintin or Captain Haddock, she sounds quite awful. Herge’s heroic comic book duo seem to have a minority opinion, though, and they’ve used Bianca’s fame to their advantage while defeating globe-trotting villains. If only Señora Castafiore, who memorizes many a famous operatic piece, could get Haddock’s name right….

Captain Haddock

In The Adventures of Tintin, Captain Archibald Haddock is captain of the merchant vessel Karaboudjan. And like so many sea captains, he has a fondness, you might say, for the bottle and the pipe.

Tintin

Tintin is a young reporter who’s drawn to dangerous adventures but always manages to make it through with a combination of bravery, quick thinking, and good luck. He doesn’t have much of a family, but his faithful dog Snowy and the friends he meets along the way are more than enough for him.
