    1. Story-wise, it's atrociously amateur and a jumbled mess. The artwork doesn't hold a candle to Hergé's excellent ligne-claire style either and in places it's almost indecipherable. Some of the satire is heavy-handed but it does poke fun at not only the Tintin franchise but the sacrosanct attitude of Hergé's literary executors and successors, and it just goes to show that nothing is sacred. A definite curiosity, but be warned that many will find it offensive (and many have).

    2. This could've been a great, fun parody, but it's stupidly obscene, and racist, and sexist. There was no need to be this nasty just to make a satire.

    3. This is quite possibly the worst thing I've ever read. A pirate comic that tries to emulate the style of Herge's beloved Tintin series but at the same time try to satirize the series by taking shots at the Herge Foundation and having characters act wildly out of character by making them sex obsessed and foulmouthed. The plot is paper thin, the dialogue is forgettable at best, the artwork is a pale imitation of Herge's and devoid of color, and the finished product comes off as racist, sexist, and [...]

    4. My Rating: 0/5 starsABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL!!Filled with profanities and disgusting conversations (which was expected when I researched on the background and found out that it happens to be an 'Adults only' comic)But the author didn't even consider it necessary to have proper storyline or any plot whatsoever. It was to terrible that I put down the book after forcing myself halfway throughHIGHLY UNRECOMMENDED!!

    5. shameless, dirty fun. part parody, part tribute to the series. don't expect the usual adventures; this is strictly an adult version!
