    "Tintin is a classic cartoon series that I grew up with. Finding this graphic novel was a wonderful surprise as it brought me back to my childhood. This particular graphic novel is about Tintin rescuing his friend from a plane crash. I love how it brought me back to the feelings I had when I first read these stories."

    "I like this graphic novel because it incorporates European history themes into it. The British are a little stereotyped but the depictions are not far from truth. The protagonists make you cheer for them and against the Roman invaders."
