About the Author
Herge, one of the most famous Belgians in the world, was a comics writer and artist. The internationally successful Adventures of Tintin are his most well-known and beloved works. They have been translated into 38 different languages and have inspired such legends as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. He wrote and illustrated for The Adventures of Tintin until his death in 1983.

Herg (Georges Remi) created the iconic Tintin in 1929, who went on to sell over 160 million copies worldwide. He died in 1983, but his work lives on, inspiring the Herg museum (opened in 2009) in his native Belgium, a Steven Spielberg-directed motion-capture blockbuster in 2011, and a record-setting auction ($1.6 million for a single drawing) in 2012.
