What was Herge's world like? The Belgians took over many countries and made their people work for them.The Belgians took diamonds and other valuable items from places like the Congo in Africa and didn't treat their people very well. Belgium was also invaded by the Nazis in 1940 and they stayed until 1944. The Nazis were very cruel to many people and often forced Belgian people to make newspapers, books, and comics to help them. Herge also borrowed a lot of his ideas from the past of people and events such as... the Aztecs in Mexico to the Incas in Peru to a war between England and China in the 1800s So What's the Big Deal Anyway? Herge and TinTin are very famous in French speaking countries, TinTin has been translated into 76 languages and you'll see him and his dog Snowy everywhere in French speaking countries. There are coins... ... and postage stamps... ... and a museum you can visit if you ever visit Belgium. The museum was built by the very famous French architect Christian de Pontzamparc in 2009. Also, did you know there is going to be a new movie? Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings) and Spielberg (Almost every movie you've ever seen) are making a film based on several TinTin books, including "The Secret of the Unicorn." What is TinTin? The Adventures of TinTin are a comic book series written from 1929 until 1983 when Herge died.
There have been over 230 million copies of the books sold.
The books detail the adventures of a young reporter, TinTin in various places across the world and on every continent. Wait, it's a comic?
I thought it was a book? TinTin: Our hero, a young journalist. Milou: TinTin's loyal dog. Thompson and Thomson: Incompetent twin detectives who always want to arrest the wrong person. Capt. Haddock: TinTin's loyal friend,
often drunk, and quick to anger. Prof. Calculus: Brilliant

Is TinTin written in English? Since Herge was Belgian, he wrote in French.
TinTin wasn't translated into English until the 1950s,
thirty years after it first began. Why don't some people like TinTin? When the Nazis took over Belgium, Herge continued to write comics for them. Some of them made the Americans and other cultures look bad. Herge later said he was sorry about this and went back and changed things in his books. Where did TinTin go? Herge wrote other books, but he will always be remembered for the TinTin adventures. We hope you'll be more interested in reading Herge's books and joining in TinTin's funny and exciting adventures around the globe. Well Herge published a single page or strip every week in a newspaper and the newspaper would put them all together in a book when they were done. So readers would have to wait months to finish an entire book. You get to read them as fast you would like though. Sometimes he would add color to them after they were in the newspaper, like the one you see here is in black and white. Early on, Herge got many cultures wrong and didn't
get the facts about them right. After his fourth book,
The Blue Lotus, however, he started to research
cultures deeply and got better about writing about them. This was him in the boyscouts,
He was in the "Squirrel Patrol" and
his nickname was"Curious Fox."

He was very good at what he did and became a troop leader,
He even became an Eagle Scout, the highest you could go

Who are the usual characters? TinTin visited every continent in his adventures and visited a large number of countries. He even used a rocketship to visit the moon. There are 23 TinTin books, and one that Herge's friends found incomplete in his house when he died. They finished the book and published it. All images used without permission.
