    hey..
    Both the Times Bookshop outlets at Centerpoint and Plaza Sing,
    have complete collections of the comics.
    Grab them best before they run outs.

    Last year, Kinokuniya have a huge selection of Tintin comics and toys in celebration of his birthday. I think they still have the entire comics collection

    Anyone knows where I can get the French version of TinTin here in Singapore? (Snowy is Milou in the French version) I dont think Alliance Francais sells it - although the library there has it.

    Can try ordering it through Borders or Kino. I doubt you can find the 'over-the-counter' editions anywhere here

    $13.90?! Is this discounted or normal prices? No warranty?

    I buy mine in the 80s......cost a whopping $6.90. In those days, its a lot of $$$ to me cos i am only in Pri school.
