A fannish blog dedicated to Science Fiction and Fantasy conventions, movies, games, game design, costuming, prop making, blogs, horror, steampunk, RPGs, Tintin, H. P. Lovecraft, Cthulhu, books, videos, and to CoastCon itself.
CoastCon is a SF & F convention that has been held annually in Biloxi, Mississippi each Spring for nearly 40 years.
This is the third of a series of four posts about the
fannish Tintin phenomena and the predilection of artistic fans to put their own
spin on the famous Hergé series.
In the last Tintin post, The Lovecraft Connection, I showed
a few fan-made Lovecraft-Tintin mashups, which placed Tintin in contact with
Cthulhu mythos creatures and situations.
In this post I want to show a few clever science fiction covers produced
We know that Hergé had an interest in science fiction with
the publication of The Shooting Star and the two-part lunar story, Destination
Moon & Explorers on the Moon.
See if you can guess what famous books and movies these
covers are referring to: some are
obvious, and a couple are more esoteric, but all are made with respect to
Tintin and the works of Hergé.
The Magneto Affair not an overtly Tintin mashup cover, but the
style is unmistakable.
