About the Author

Herge

Tintin was created in 1929 by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé, then aged just 21, for a weekly children's newspaper supplement. Tintin is a young reporter, aided in his adventures by his faithful fox terrier dog Snowy (Milou in French). In Tintin, Hergé created a hero who embodied human qualities and virtues, without any faults.

The Adventures of Tintin is one of the most popular comics series of the twentieth century, with translations published in over 80 languages, and more than 230 million copies of the books sold worldwide.
