Tintin Au Congo Hearings Set

If I'm reading this news brief at the French-language comics news clearinghouse correctly, there were a few quick but important updates yesterday to the ongoing story whereby Congolese-born Mbutu Mondondo is pressing racism-based charges against Tintin Au Congo for its portrayal of Africans and Congolese society. First and most important, the hearing yesterday ended with an immediate trial date set: May 12. Second, the case may be made that Moulinsart rather than any of the book's actual publishers controls the content of the work. Third, a case may be taken to the European human rights commission.
