Tintin Au Congo Sit-In Mostly Rained Out

Didier Pasamonik has an amusing story up at ActuaBD.com about a protest against the racist elements of venerable comics album backlist veteran Tintin Au Congo. Apparently, rain and an undesirable location kept the number of protesters at the meeting-for-coffee level. What's less amusing for many is a push that the book be removed from all shelves rather than provided explanatory context. Somehow, Barrack Obama's name is dropped.
