It seems from the message on the Hugoye list that the first episode of Tintin in Syriac has actually not been published yet, but one can pre-order a copy, and "help publish" Tintin in America in Syriac.

old/classical Syriac
or a modern dialect?

I like collecting items like this and am not ashamed to have ἡ φιλοσόφου λίθος H FILOSOFOY LIQOS for light reading, quite a nice translation.

I can't get the image I saw earlier, but I presume it is Suryoyo, i.e. Neo-Classical Syriac, the best analogy for which would be the sort of Latin the Finn's have on their radio station.
