The adventures of a young woman named Ai-lyn is part of the TG Comic series. This series tells the story of a normal girl raised in the United States, and converted to Islam in Egypt. She lives in California, where she works as a medical assistant. One day, she gets a phone call from her sister, Saleh, who lives in Istanbul. They are trying to get to her family, which is now in Istanbul.
The two sisters decide to follow their friend Saleh. Along the way, they meet a boy called Mohamad, who is trying to escape to Australia. He tells them his story of how he was abandoned by his father and brothers and forced to become a drug addict. He tells of his encounter with the terrorist group, the Abu Sayyid group.
After some time, Saleh's friend decides to come back. He tells of all the horrors that he has seen in Abu Dhabi, and his desire to help Saleh's daughter, Emrah, who is studying to become a nurse. He joins her in her studies. However, things do not go well between the two. As things heated up, they began to argue, and Saleh left.
Soon after, they come across an IS fighter in an IS cell, who tells them all about what they have been going through. This boy then turns out to be Mohamad. He tells them that the Abu Dhabi authorities have ordered the release of all IS members from the prison.
When Saleh and Emrah return to America, Saleh kills Mohamad and flees to Egypt. Shortly thereafter, Saleh contacts Togaith from Australia, who is working with an IS splinter group. Togaith tells Saleh about a meeting that he and his group have attended.
In this comic, Togaith and Saleh end up joining forces with Togaith's Australian wife, Amy. They help Togaith's former comrades free Saleh and Emrah. Afterward, Togaith and Saleh decide to defect back to IS, while Togaith gets a new life in Australia. Soon after this, Saleh and Emrah return to America. They reunite with Togaith and his son, Azzam.
This is an interesting way of presenting a story. It helps the readers understand how these fighters came to join IS in the first place. It also provides some background on the circumstances that led to Saleh and Emrah's defection. In addition, it shows that there is a certain sense of disillusionment with IS; as well as how others in their group feel that they were misled.
The artwork is decent. There are a few problems with it, such as an inconsistent color scheme. It also has very little body art. But overall, this is a decent Tintin comic.
One of the best things about Tintin is that it manages to stay true to the strip's roots. It follows the story just like it went. It isn't completely unbelievable, but it isn't ridiculous either. It is a fun read, despite its lacking realism.
However, the biggest complaint I have is that the comic book takes far too long. Between Tintin' Out and two other Tintin specials, I have gone through over 20 pages of non-stop action. There is little down time between panels, which can be frustrating for someone who doesn't have the longest attention span. It can also make a reader lose patience because they keep waiting for something to happen.
Fortunately, most of these issues are short filler between main storylines. I recommend picking up one of the specials, skipping the rest. That way you get more of the Tintin story, without spending twice as much time on the non-storyline material.
Overall, this is a good comic. It is entertaining and creative, while staying true to the strip's original concepts. I recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting take on the life of Tiny Gertrude Tintin. If you are into fantasy comedy, you will enjoy it. If you are not, it might not work for you.
