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 Cigares Du Pharaon / Cigars of the Pharaoh (Tintin)?

Tintin travels through Egypt and India  Nov 24, 2004
On a journey to Egypt Tintin meets absentminded Egyptologist Professor Siclone. The professor is in search of mystery. The only clue is a symbol drawn on a piece of parchment. Once in Egypt Tintin and Snowy follow the professor into an underground passageway marked by the symbol and find empty sarcophaguses marked with their names. They escape and find themselves pursued by mysterious criminals. All the while the mysterious symbol keeps turning up on stone walls, painted on trees, and on cigar labels...

This comic is fun because of the exotic landscapes. Tintin travels through Egypt and India which are drawn with exotic flare. Whenever he thinks he has entered the traditional untouched east, western civilization intrudes: He rescues a lady from bandits only to discover that he has just spoiled a scene from an adventure movie. He is captured by Bedouins who recognize him as a celebrity reporter and are happy to have him as a guest. He approaches two arabs to ask directions and finds that they are in fact the Thompson and Thomson team who have donned robes to blend in. The east meets west theme, inherent even in the mysterious cigars marked with an ancient Egyptian symbol, kept me guessing through the book.

The Cigars of the Pharoah maintains the quality of other books in the series. There are jokes for children and for adults, so it is a good purchase for families and public libraries. There are some loose ends which are tied up on part 2 of the story: The Blue Lotus.

If you are reading this to help learn French, Tintin comics are good for reading at a French 2 level. There are a lot of 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. This particular comic seems to have more every-day vocabulary than other Tintin books.
Excellent art and the story line is just perfect!  Dec 18, 1998
