Recently, I've been recalling the Tintin stories, and I realized, these stories can get very, very dark. I know most of the time the situations arent that horrible for kids, like "Castafiore Emerald", "Shooting Star", "Broken Ear", and "King Ottokar's Sceptre", but most are extremely dark, especially "Explorers on the Moon". This is such a dark comic, I can hardly believe it was written for children. Snowy breaks his leg from a stow-a-way on the moon rocket, someone is shot and KILLED, someone jumps out into space (if you know what happens when a person is exposed to the nothingness of space), and almost everyone dies from suffocation. Most have to do with drug smuggling, murder, and slave trading.
Tintin himself has gotten plenty of injuries that really should've killed him. I know I've gone on and on about Tintin being the luckiest man on earth. But seriously, how the hell is this kid still alive? He's been shot three times and blown up! And don't get me started on crashes. His medical bills must be very high.
Anyway, Tintin is a very dark comic for kids, but overall still enjoyable.

lol.. never too deep for kids.. maybe TODAY'S kids who've been bogged down by parents who think they're to fragile to handle the world and the truth in it (ooooh boy.. I know some of those types.. luckily, they're far and few betwwn, but don't get me started.) Lol.. I mena.. parents today think kids'll be scared by Bambi for cripes sake lol.. yeh right.. as a kid.. it didn't even PHASE me! I do cry at it now, but because of the wonderful art.. I guess it's cause somewhere in me i knew I was watching a movie.. even at the age of 5. What happened to kids man o.o?

The movies and TV shows coming out these days are horrendous. With a few exceptions.

you know, kids in the past were different than we are now. there was a war on the corner, they had to fight and choose a side, you know.
I know, maybe I can say that I know, if you start a comic, it'll change, your original plans will become darker OR happier. we might get these stories different, than '30's kids did-we do, of course! but they were fascinated and addicted too ;)
knowing internet, today's kids learn worse things, not only life and death.

btw, it's supposed to be a positive comment to your journal, I'm sometimes really afraid and worry because of that boy and always asking Hergé, why did he do that, how, etc :XD:

I get that, like how animation isn't limited to kids anymore, yadda yadda. But other people don't see that.

Except for animes and shows you normally see on adult channels. I really don't care what it is, I'm a fan of every type of animation.

I grew up with Tintin and it has never been dark for me, even till this day. Perhaps it has to do with the bright palette Hergé uses in all the panels. Not to mention dark aspects like murders are always played down enough so that children don't realize them (I know I didn't). Now that I'm an adult, I do notice the real-life, serious sides behind the stories; but it still sums up to be an entertaining series.
