More About Herge


Herge Georges Remi was born in Brussels, Belgium, in 1907.

Although he would go on to be one of the world’s most iconic cartoonists, Georges was not a particularly standout student as a young boy. Instead, he preferred to indulge in his love for adventure and games with his friends on the streets of Brussels. In secondary school, he joined the Boy Scouts. His drawing skills quickly caught the attention of the Scout leaders, and it wasn’t long before he was illustrating a Scout magazine and creating his first characters.

It was around this time that he decided to take the pen name “Hergé,” the French pronunciation of his initials in reverse. Georges left school at age 17 and eventually got a job helping create the children’s pages of a daily newspaper, Le Vingtième Siècle.

Hergé first drew Tintin in Le Petit Vingtième (the children’s pages of Le Vingtième Siècle) in 1929. The little reporter was an instant success in Belgium and beyond. By the 1950s, the Tintin adventures had become so popular that Hergé set up Studios Hergé. This not only supplied Hergé with a team of assistants and artists to expand the Tintin universe, it also freed him to do in-depth research for his stories, many of which took his characters to places that Hergé — and his devoted readers — had never seen.

Although Tintin traveled around the world, Hergé stayed in Belgium for most of his life. In his later years, the artist and author managed to make trips to several countries and see firsthand the places that inspired Tintin’s exciting adventures.

Herge was born in 1907 and died in 1983.

Reviews - What do customers think about Les Aventures de Tintin: L'Ile Noire (French Edition of The Black Island)?

Tintin chases counterfeiters through the British Isles  Nov 25, 2004
While on a walk in the countryside Tintin sees a small plane make an emergency landing in a field. When he approaches the pilot to offer help he is shot at. Later he returns to investigate and follows a trail of counterfeit money to Scottland. Tintin is suspicious about what is going on on the Black Island. Natives say that a monster lives on the island and that those who travel there never come back. But Tintin must investigate...

Snowy explores the deadly sin of gluttony in this book: He spends the beginning of the book persistently dragging around a large bone and then a roasted chicken while Tintin scolds him. Snowy also discovers alcohol when he finds a leaky wine container in the cargo car of a train. Later Snowy drinks beer from a keg in a Scottish bar. Tintin is up to his usual quality, and fans of Snowy will especially like this one. The dog is super cute!

If you are reading this to help learn French, Tintin comics are good for reading at a French 2 level. There are many words that aren't basic vocabulary but it is still easy to follow the story because the writing and pictures tend to reinforce each other.
