Alternatives to Tintin that are not Asterix for a 5 year old?

A young acquaintance of mine is a huge Tintin fan. He has read every book in the series and we are now looking to expand his library. Asterix has been tried and rejected. What makes Tintin a hit for this child is the BD panel comic style and Tintin's physical humour (as opposed to the more sophisticated wordplay humour of Asterix.)
Other books he enjoys are Mr Men and Miss Men (because he is 5) but he has also taken to Quick & Flupke
, and expressed interest in the 1930s colour Sunday strips of Gasoline Alley
He enjoys both reading on his own and being read to so we're looking for suggestions for both. Thank you!
