Raise your hands if you grew up on a diet of TinTin and Asterix. TinTin and Asterix were popular English graphic novels for young readers in 1980s/90s Singapore.

The equivalent for mandarin was an the translated version of Japan’s Slam Dunk.

Herge’s TinTin was one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century and has been translated into more than 70 languages.

I just discovered the cartoons on youtube and I’m enjoying vegging out in front…
