In addition to the 24 official comic strip albums written by Hergé, several unofficial parodies and pastiches of The Adventures of Tintin have been published over the years by various authors.

While some consist in entirely new drawings made to resemble the original art, others were created by splicing together strips from the original albums, and rewriting the dialogue. This is made easier by the fact that the original series featured a whole ensemble of recurrent characters, giving a re-editor plenty of material to choose from for every character.

The copyright owner of the original comics, Moulinsart, has taken legal steps to stop publication of some of the unofficial material. Eric Jenot's Tintin Parodies site was closed down by Moulinsart in 2004 for displaying Tintin parodies and pastiches. Other material has remained available, for instance the anarchist/communist comic Breaking Free.


Some parodies of Tintin feature the actual Tintin characters with their original identities and personalities, some feature the original characters but with wildly modified personalities, and some simply reuse the appearance of the characters but give them completely different names and identities.

They generally fall into one of two sub-sections:


  • Breaking Free by J. DanielsAnarchist/Communist book about Tintin growing up in a poor working class area of Englandmarker and about how he joins the revolution.
  • Tintin in Lebanon — Tintin fights Arabs in Lebanonmarker. This comic was published in National Lampoon, an American humour magazine, and is strongly anti-Muslim in an ironic sense, as it pretends to support the Reagan administration's supposed policies.
  • Tintin en Irak (Tintin in Iraqmarker) — published shortly after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, this comic uses actual panels from previous Tintin comics — with new text – to make a cynical statement about the events leading up to the war.
  • Tintin au Salvador (Tintin in El Salvadormarker) — Tintin battles the corrupt government of El Salvador.
  • L'Énigme du 3ième message (The Enigma of the 3rd Message) — Tintin battles an international evil conspiracy involving the Pope.
  • Tintin dans le Golfe (Tintin in the Gulf)
  • Juquin rénovateur du vingtième siècle au Pays de Soviets — This is a re-hash of Tintin in the Land of the Soviets with French political leader Pierre Juquin being drawn instead of Tintin. It was published in the book Élysez-les tous by Jalons.
  • Tintin in Basramarker — featured in MAD magazine{{fix

    • A Day at the Airport — Rodier planned to complete the album debuted by Hergé as soon as his own version of the Alph-Art went completed. However, due to harsh reactions from the Moulinsart Foundation, Rodier decided to leave the project, though he did produce one page from the "Airport" album.
    • Reporter Pigiste (Freelance Reporter) — 3-page story, made in autumn 1992, loosely based on a scenario suggested in issue No. 1027 of Spirou from December 19, 1957: a young Tintin solves a bank robbery and gets his job with Le Petit Vingtiéme. The end of the story directly leads into Tintin in the Land of the Soviets.
    • Tintin and the Thermozéro — This page is an inking of page 4 from a leftover project of Hergé's.

  • Tintin et l'Alph-art (Tintin and Alph-art) by "Ramo Nash" — This is a "completed" version of Hergé's unfinished Tintin and Alph-art. It is only available in black-and-white, and in French.
  • Tintin in the New World by Frederic Tuten — A prose novel, not illustrated, that got Hergé's permission shortly before his death. Tintin gets bored of adventures and falls in love.
  • Tintin and the Flute of the Wendigo and Tintin in Australia by Conlan.
  • La Menace des Steppes (The Terror of the Steppes) by Sakharine — Tintin and Haddock battle Soviets in Afghanistanmarker.
  • Le rocher des kangourous (The Rock of Kangaroos) by Harry Edwood — Incomplete. Other Edwood pastiches are on hold or never got past the cover drawing.
  • Teen Titans Spotlight #11, DC Comics, 1987, "The Brotherhood is Dead", written by Jean-Marc Lofficier, art by Joe Orlando
  • Tum Tum and the Forged Expenses — At the height of its popularity in 1988, the Spitting Image television show produced a tie-in comic book featuring a Tintin spoof where Tum Tum, an alcoholic Fleet Streetmarker journalist, follows a false lead to a drugs-smuggling operation at a Sohomarker S&M bar. Captain Haddock is portrayed as 'Captain Haddit', a leather-clad predatory homosexual. The Thomppson Twins (note the double p) turn up at the end of the story to arrest Tum Tum for his forged expenses claims. Snowy is renamed 'Spewy', and ends up being run over by a car. The story makes numerous references to real Tintin adventures (most notably The Blue Lotus) as well as fictional non-canonical ones (such as Tum Tum and the Cross-Eyed Vivisectionist).
  • There was a series of advertisements for the Citroen 2CV6 involving the Tintin characters which took the form of book covers for non-existent stories. In these, the advertised car appeared prominently as a photograph with the Tintin characters around it. Drawing were done by long-time partner Bob de Moor.
  • Objectif Monde (Destination World) by David Savard — Released in Le Monde on January 28, 1999, to celebrate Tintin's 70th birthday and the Comics Festival in Angoulêmemarker. The Hergé Foundation gave its authorization and allowed the publication of this first "official" pastiche, fully approved by Hergé's beneficiaries. The short story, 26 pages long, makes numerous references to the adventures of Tintin. The main protagonist is a naive young reporter called Wzkxy, who is embroiled in an unlikely conspiracy theory — supposedly the Tintin books contained encoded messages aimed at the USSR. It has since been reprinted in various forms, and has also been translated into English by Vlipvlop (pseudonym) in early 2006.
  • "Tim-Tim: Prisoners of the Red Planet," by Robert Sikoryak — A two-page parody of Destination Moon, about "Tim-Tim" on Mars, published in Wired magazine in July 2001.
  • Tintin, Snowy, and Haddock all briefly appear in the comic Scarlet Traces, by Ian Edginton and D'Israeli.
  • In Kim Newman's novel Dracula Cha-Cha-Cha, Tintin and Bianca Castafiore both appear. In his short story "Angels of Music", Bianca Castafiore is implied at being the descendant of the character Carlotta from The Phantom of the Opera.
