Tin Tin and Jack in Penrith

Red Rooster Jack

Doing the rounds of Facebook last week was this parody cover mock-up of a "Tin Tin" comic:

Tin Tin in Penrith

While the scene is almost-instantly recognised as The 'Riff for all manner of iconic reasons, there still seemed to be something missing. It occurred to me today: the image needed a few inappropriate palm trees!

As you can see, the Red Rooster takeaway food store, depicted in the joke cover, is a more generic Red Rooster, but most of the elements were visible today. Minus the colourful human riff raff.

I have collected more than 1,000 Tintin covers -- real, pastiche, parody, imitation, fake, and pirate on my web site ( There is information and photos of the artists as well. Also a contest to design a new Tintin fake cover.
