To watch: "Tintin and I" PBS doc on Hergé, Tue. July 11.

Tomorrow night, the PBS series POV will air "Tintin and I," Anders Østergaard's biography of Tintin creator Hergé.

An accompanying online feature at explores the growing acceptance of comic books — er, cough, graphic novels — as a legit form of art and lit for adults, and includes interviews with six contemporary comic artists who talk about Hergé's influence on their work: Jessica Abel (La Perdida), Daniel Clowes (Ghost World), Phoebe Gloeckner (Diary of a Teenage Girl), Jason Lutes (Berlin), Seth, and Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan – The Smartest Kid on Earth).
